Response to Intervention (RtI)
The district has renewed its commitment to RtI. Lessons learned from the pilot and the first year of full implementation of RtI have allowed us to begin to create a clearer, more aligned RtI process with an emphasis on high-quality core instruction. The essence of this clearer, more aligned RtI process is as follows:
- RTI is first and foremost about high-quality instruction for all students at the Universal level.
- Interventions (i.e., targeted instruction) must align with effective practices that support students with core classroom performance.
- Progress-monitoring is about tracking how students perform through formative assessments and is not unique to CBMs.
- CBMs are required after a student has entered the SIT process for potential significant learning disability identification.
