Academic Systems

Improving student academic and behavior outcomes is about ensuring all students have access to the most effective and accurately implemented instructional and behavioral practices and interventions possible.



In the RTI framework, the instruction delivered to students varies based on the nature and severity of a student's difficulties.

RTI core principles:

I. We can effectively teach all children 

II. Intervene early through Universal Screening 

III. Use a Multi-tier Model of Service Delivery to support student learning

IV. Use a problem-solving method to make decisions 

V. Use research-based, scientifically validated interventions / instruction 

VI. Monitor student progress to inform instruction 

VII. Use data to make decisions

VIII. Use assessment for three different purposes
