Response to Instruction

The data driven Response to Instruction (RTI) process identifies if students are making academic progress or if they need targeted instructional supports. School RTI teams examine student proficiency in reading, writing, and math and also include behavior and attendance data in the review. This is not a traditional “pull-out” program. Interventions take place in the classroom, from the classroom teacher.

  • A screening tool (STAR) is used to measure the effectiveness of instruction and provides three tiers of support for students that are not meeting grade level learning standards.
  • STAR screenings are used at various points through the school year.
  • The RTI team at each school meets monthly to review instructional intervention plans for students and plans are adjusted as students make progress or need a different support.
