Response to Intervention - Multi-Tiered System of Support

  • Response to Intervention (RtI) is a campus-wide approach to meet the academic and behavioral needs of all students.  It is a problem-solving approach to determine and apply the most effective instructional practices for each student.  

    The RtI process utilizes:

    • Rigorous, high-quality instruction for all students using a research-based curriculum.
    • A tiered system of support, providing appropriate levels of academic and/or behavioral intervention based on a student’s needs.
    • Utilization of a variety of data to guide educational decisions.
    • Frequent monitoring of student progress and adaptation of instruction and intervention to meet student needs in a timely manner.

    Region 3 Education Service Center provides assistance to school districts and campuses through a variety of RtI services.  These include professional development, on-site training, technical assistance and contracted services. Please see below for specific service information and resources.
