RTI Explanation

 

Lauderdale County Schools supports the development and implementation of a strong and effective Response to Intervention (RTI).   LCSD supports the philosophy underlying the RTI, which aims to provide effective intervention services to students as soon as they begin to demonstrate academic, social, emotional and/or behavioral difficulties.

Definition of RTI:

Response to intervention integrates assessment and intervention within a multi-level prevention system to maximize student achievement and reduce behavior problems. With RTI, schools identify students at risk for poor learning outcomes, monitor student progress, provide evidence-based interventions and adjust the intensity and nature of those interventions depending on a student’s responsiveness, and identify students with learning disabilities. Response to Intervention is a state-and federally-mandated system of tiered, research-supported interventions designed to address the needs of general education students. RTI must be implemented with fidelity before a student suspected of having a disability can be referred for a Multidisciplinary Team evaluation.
