What Every Parent Needs to Know about RtI
Response to Intervention (RtI) is a process schools use to provide targeted instruction to students needing help. Services are provided in tiers according to a child's unique needs.
In some school districts, administrators required students to pass through every tier of RtI before a referral for a special education evaluation could be made. This practice directly violates Department of Education guidance and should no longer be used in schools. A parent may ask for an evaluation anytime during the RtI process.
