Response to Intervention (RtI)
Response to Intervention (RtI) is a vertical and multi-disciplinary team that analyzes individual children’s instructional and behavioral needs and the agreed upon root cause(s), following preliminary interventions in the classroom by the teacher. From this analysis, the team creates an instructional or behavioral intervention implemented by the child’s teachers and parents that is progress monitored through focused data collection. For each child supported, the committee reconvenes in 6-8 weeks to review the collected data and evaluate the effectiveness of the implemented intervention(s).
Through the RtI process, children can meet or make progress towards their goals or potentially be identified as Twice Exceptional. For more on Twice Exceptionality, visit our page here.
If you feel your student is in need of further support, please contact your child’s classroom teacher (K-5) or advisory teacher (6-8). They can then work with you to begin the Response to Intervention (RtI) process to support your child in their area of need.
