Response to Intervention

Response to Intervention (RTI) is a framework designed to identify and support students who struggle with learning at an early stage. It involves a multi-tiered approach to providing high-quality instruction, intervention and support to students at varying levels of need. Student progress is monitored using various methods such as standardized tests, teacher observations and informal assessments. Data is collected from these assessments inform decisions about the effectiveness of interventions and help educators adjust their strategies to better support the students' learning needs. 

The goal of RTI is to prevent academic failure by providing timely and appropriate support to students. It emphasizes early identification, evidence-based interventions, continuous monitoring of progress and data-driven decision-making to ensure that every student receives the help they need to succeed academically. 

Tier 1

Universal Interventions


  • Whole class

  • Classroom teachers monitor for those that are falling behind


Tier 2

Targeted Interventions


  • Students are identified as at-risk based on their tier 1 performance

  • Small group, specific interventions that are focused and address the challenges of the particular student

  • Progress is monitored closely so adjustments can be made as needed


Tier 3

Intensive Interventions


  • Students are identified as still struggling after tier 1 and tier 2 supports 

  • Small group or individual interventions that are highly specialized and tailored to the unique needs of the student
