Response to Intervention
Response to Intervention (RTI) is a multi-tiered instructional, schoolwide framework that addresses the needs of all students, including struggling learners and students with disabilities. It integrates assessment and intervention within a multi-level instructional and behavioral system to maximize student achievement and reduce problem behaviors.
MTPS utilizes a three-tier model which includes the following:
- Tier I: Intervention plan is created by the classroom teacher to address instructional needs
- Tier II: If adequate progress in the curriculum is not achieved with tier I interventions, the classroom teacher seeks the assistance of a content-specific coach (ELA/math) and/or specialized staff to collaboratively devise a plan to be employed by the teacher to address instructional needs
- Tier III: If adequate progress in the curriculum is not achieved with tier II interventions, more intensive instruction is employed by a content-specific coach
