Response to Intervention (RtI) Resources

Response to Intervention (RtI) is a prevention and intervention system that is applied to any student if she/he starts to fall behind in school.  Intensity of intervention increases as a student continues to struggle. It is a general education system that should be employed prior to a special education referral. Click on the links below to learn more.
