Response to Intervention (RTI) is a general education model that promotes early identification of students who may be in need of additional academic and behavioral support. Parents and teachers want to help children succeed in school. RTI provides a flexible problem-solving model in which schools provide timely assistance to students and match that help to each learner’s level of need. (Wright, p. 36)
In Georgia, a four-tier RTI model has been adopted for early intervention and to determine the student's response as required by Georgia Exceptional Student regulations. Students receive instruction based on their needs and may move within the pyramid as data supports.
Please request a conference at the school of enrollment as soon as possible to look into your concerns.
Please request a Tier 2 meeting to review the documentation and any concerns so the team can determine the next steps for assisting your child. As a vital member of the RTI team, your participation in meeting is crucial. Please let them team know if there are specific days or times that work with your schedule or if you need to participate by phone.
Please contact your local school and request a conference with your teacher to discuss any concerns.
