Response to Intervention (RtI)
Matt Perry, Ed.D., Assistant Superintendent
Response to Intervention (RtI) is an approach to stave off academic failure of students by affording them with appropriate interventions upon early warning signs of school failure. RtI requires an integrated service delivery model in which all school staff are invested in the positive outcomes for each student.
RtI depends on a three-tiered system, which begins in the general education classroom, but also affords intensive interventions to those students at risk of school failure. It is a way to assure effective intervention solutions for every student encountering learning challenges.
In an effort to better address the needs of students with special needs, the Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE) provided a professional development series to area educators titled "Putting It All Together: Stepping Stones for RtI Intervention." Videos of each of the three sessions, along with supporting presentation materials, are available online.
