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:     


We can effectively teach all children
Intervene early through Universal Screening
Use a Multi-tier Model of Service Delivery to support student learning 
Use a problem-solving method to make decisions
Use research-based, scientifically validated interventions / instruction
Monitor student progress to inform instruction
Use data to make decisions
Use assessment for three different purposes
