• Response to Intervention - RTI

    Response to Intervention is an assessment and intervention with a multi-level prevention system designed to maximize student achievement.  Schools use data to identify students at risk for poor learning outcomes, monitor student's progress, provide
    evidence-based interventions and adjust the intensity and nature of those interventions depending on a student's responsiveness, and identify students with learning deficiencies or other deficiencies.
