Response to Intervention (RtI)

What is RtI?

According to the National Center on Response to Intervention, "Response to intervention integrates assessment and intervention within a multi-level prevention system to maximize student achievement and to reduce behavior problems. With RtI, schools identify students at risk for poor learning outcomes, monitor student 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 disabilities" (2010). 
What are the Levels of RtI at Elk Grove?
There are three levels of RtI at Elk Grove. The first level focuses upon providing research-based best practice instruction to all students. The secondary level of RtI is characterized by smaller targeted groups of students who require additional support to be successful in the classroom. These students, for example, may receive additional support through academic resource room study and small group instruction. The third, tertiary, level is for students who require intense, one-on-one instruction to be successful. The RtI pyramid outlines these levels of instructional support in this framework.
