Response to Intervention (RTI) Team

Response to intervention is an education initiative designed to help all students achieve success in school. The team has ten members including an administrator and nine members of the C.K. Burns School staff from various disciplines. RTI is a set of procedures by which a student's educational needs are determined based on how the student responds to high quality instruction in general education settings. It is systematic, three-tiered and data driven, and the instructional practices become increasingly more individualized and targeted based on the student's response at each level.

The first level, Tier 1 is really all that occurs naturally in a classroom. All students receive instruction within a research-based, proven core program. Assessment data and other information from progress monitoring will be used to determine if students are meeting grade level standards. Those children not making adequate progress in the core curriculum receive small group, targeted interventions in addition to classroom instruction with regular progress monitoring, Tier 2.

Tier 3 consists of children whose needs are at the intensive level. Students in Tier 3 receive individualized, intensive interventions with increased frequency, duration and progress monitoring. At all levels of intervention students' progress is monitored to determine if students are meeting goals, and parent involvement is encouraged throughout the process.
