RTI- Response to Intervention - Helping all children to be successful and excel in the classroom is a goal of every school and the hope of every concerned parent.  In order to ensure that all children are supported and thriving in their classroom, there is a growing, federally initiated effort in schools to quickly determine supports for students who are demonstrating an area of need.  This process is called Response to Intervention or RTI.  RTI supports the experts in the school as they determine, implement, monitor,  and support the specific needs of the student.  RTI ensures that the child's needs are addressed quickly, with proven, researched-based teaching strategies and interventions.  These supports are put into place to prevent the student from falling behind.
