Response to Intervention

Response to Intervention (RTI) Committee Referral Process


RTI is a process in which interventions are developed for students who exhibit academic and/or behavior problems. This approach involves a three tier model and a multi-disciplinary team. Students are generally referred to RTI by the classroom teacher, reading specialist, speech therapist, or pupil personnel provider in order to determine appropriate interventions. 

Tier I: Interventions begin with high quality, research-based techniques implemented in the regular education setting. The teacher assesses the child’s progress in order to determine the effectiveness of current interventions. If students do not make adequate progress, more intensive strategies are implemented.

Tier II: At this level, more intensive services and targeted interventions are usually provided in a small group or individualized setting, in addition to classroom instruction. This may consist of Academic Intervention Services (AIS) in reading, math, writing, speech/language, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, behavioral interventions, and counseling. Parents are notified of Tier II level supports.

Tier III: If students do not respond to the targeted interventions in Tier II, eligibility for additional services including special education are considered in consultation with parents.
