Response to Intervention (RtI)

Response to intervention (commonly abbreviated RTI or RtI) is a method of academic intervention used in the United States to provide early, systematic assistance to children who are having difficulty learning.  RTI seeks to prevent academic failure through early intervention, frequent progress measurement, and increasingly intensive research-based instructional interventions for children who continue to have difficulty academically and/or behaviorally.  The RtI model is used in the Ross Local School District's Child Study Process
