Response to Intervention (RTI)

3 Tiers of Support

What is RTI?

RTI stands for Response To Intervention.  RTI is a federal and state initiative to meet a wide range of student needs through general education services.  Students in Kindergarten through 5th grade will be monitored using a universal screening tool three times per year (fall, winter & spring).

AIMS WEB is used as an assessment; this data will be used to help determine academic areas of need.

Students showing deficits in reading will receive research-based interventions in addition to classroom instruction.  

Students may be referred to the SIT/SAP Team for problem solving & collaboration to develop effective interventions.

Students will be placed into 
one of three tiers:

Tier I students receive basic instruction in the classroom (80% of student population).

Tier II students will receive additional small group instruction each day in reading (15% of student population).

Tier III students will receive additional individualized instruction each day in reading. (5% of student population).

The interventions will continue until the student makes sufficient progress; if the student continues to struggle, more interventions will be put into place.
