RtI stands for Response to Intervention (RtI). It is a process that provides intervention and
educational support to all students at increasing levels of intensity based on their own individual
needs. The goal of RtI is to prevent problems and intervene early, so that students can be
successful. The RtI process has three tiers, each providing more intensive levels of support. Tier 1
includes high quality instruction for all students in the general education classroom. Tier 2
includes additional interventions and supplemental instruction to small groups of students who
need more support than they are receiving through Tier 1. Tier 3 includes intensive interventions to
meet the needs of individual students. Students who are receiving support through the RtI process
are closely monitored for progress and to determine if the interventions are meeting their needs.
