The current focus is on a research-based process known as Response-to-Intervention (RTI).
Response-to-Intervention: The RTI process is a multi-step approach to providing services and interventions to students who struggle with learning at increased levels of intensity.
The application of RTI is typically understood within the context of a multitiered model or framework that outlines a series of programs and services for students experiencing academic difficulties.
The progress a student makes at each stage is closely monitored. Results of the monitoring are used to make educational decision.
