What is RTI?

Response to Instruction (RtI) refers to an instructional framework that promotes a well-integrated system connecting general, gifted, supplemental, and special education services in providing high quality, standards-based instruction and intervention that is matched to students’ academic, social-emotional, and behavioral needs. RtI combines core instruction, assessment, and intervention within a multi-tiered system to increase student achievement and reduce behavior problems. Please join us in the auditorium to learn about how this process works at our school.

Want to know more? Join Mrs. Ritchey and several other faculty members as we learn about Response to Instruction on FRIDAY, November 15th @ 10 am in the Auditorium.
