RTI – Response to Intervention Review

RtI was just implemented in 2010

Consists of 3 tiers, after the 3rd tier your child should be considered for ESE services.

School can evaluate and continue to collect RtI data simultaneously.

Each tier should only be 6-8 weeks of data collection before a child is moved to another tier, if interventions are not working.

Tier 1:
– Approx. 80% of students
– targets all students who are below grade level
