What do we mean by RTI?

RtI is a school process used to determine if a student is responding to classroom instruction and progressing as expected. In the RtI process, a student who is struggling receives additional instructional support provided by matching instruction to a student’s individual needs through a multi-tier instructional model. Each level, also known as a tier, provides instruction with increased intensity such as smaller groups or instructional time focused on specific areas. RtI focuses on the early prevention of academic and behavioral difficulties by:
• ensuring appropriate instruction for all students;
• monitoring students’ progress; and
• providing additional levels of instructional assistance
(intervention) for students who require support.
