Response to Intervention (RTI) Process

An early intervention program for academically and behaviorally challenged students to achieve success using a three-tiered approach

All steps are data-driven

Entry into RTI
All students are screened to see who might fail without interventions. The progress of these students is monitored and struggling students are then placed into the RTI program.
Tier 1 of RTI

Primary prevention consisting of research-based instruction in the classroom

Meets the needs of 80% of students; remaining are sent to tier 2

Tier 2 of RTI

Secondary prevention that includes researched-based intervention in small support groups that are led by adults

Meets the needs of 15% of students; remaining are sent to tier 3

Tier 3 of RTI

Tertiary prevention that is specifically designed for the individual student

Meets the needs of 5% of students; remaining students are sent for special education evaluation

Title IX

A law focused on removing gender inequality in schools

Required schools to safeguard against sexual assault, end pregnant student discrimination, and provide equal athletic opportunities to women

Reason for shortage of women in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) programs
Less than 25% of students are women due unbalanced attention and praise in math and science classes and emphasis on gender roles in class choice
No Child Left Behind (NCLB)

Federal legislation requiring schools to implement standards-based testing

Tied to Title I Funding, which gave monetary assistance to low-income districts

Helped identify struggling students

Response to Intervention (RTI): Universal Screenings

These are performed on all students in a school when first implementing the RTI process.

Response to Intervention (RTI): Tiers

1: Primary Prevention

2: Secondary Prevention
