Mission Statement

  • Our vision for RTI is that all students can achieve with the right supports. We will work together as a whole school to create a systematic framework of providing high quality instruction and intervention matched to student needs. We will use scientific-research based programs and valid and reliable assessments. Ongoing professional development and leadership will be provided to ensure the success of our students.

Defining RTI

RTI integrates assessment and intervention within a school-wide, multi-level prevention system to maximize student achievement and 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 based on a student’s responsiveness.

RTI may be used as part of the determination process for identifying students with specific learning disabilities or other disabilities.
