RTI - Response to Intervention

Region III ESC provides information and assistance to our school districts regarding the implementation of the RTI process. RTI is the practice of meeting the academic and behavioral needs of all students through a variety of services containing the following key elements:

  • High-quality instruction and scientific research-based (SRB) tiered interventions aligned with individual student need
  • Frequent monitoring of student progress to make results-based academic and/or behavioral decisions
  • Application of student response data to important educational decisions (such as those regarding placement, intervention, curriculum, and instructional goals and methodologies)

The instructional approaches used within the general education setting should result in academic and/or behavioral progress for the majority of students. Struggling students are identified using data-based student progress monitoring and provided intensive instruction.

RTI holds the promise of ensuring that all children have access to high quality instruction and that struggling learners, including those with learning disabilities (LD), are identified, supported, and served early and efficiently. Driven and documented by reliable data, the implementation of RTI in Texas schools can result in:

  • more effective instruction
  • increased student achievement
  • more appropriate LD identification
  • increased professional collaboration
  • overall school improvement
