What is Response to Intervention?
What happens when a student is struggling with academics, behavior, or attendance?
That’s where District 60’s “Response to Intervention” (RTI) and “Multi-Tiered Systems of Support” (MTSS) programs come in.
RTI and MTSS systems of support combine academic assessments with interventions, designed to maximize student achievement and reduce behavior problems.
With MTSS/RTI, schools use data to identify struggling students, monitor student progress, and provide evidence-based interventions for the student. The nature of these interventions are dependent on the student’s individual needs.
Additionally, students’ families are key partners during the RTI implementation process. By knowing the RTI process, parents provide much more effective support for their child.
