Response to Intervention refers to a process which emphasizes how well students respond to specific teaching strategies and subsequent redirection of instruction. Targeted services and multi-leveled interventions are implemented early and regularly to help students make progress. The RtI approach eliminates a “wait-to-fail” situation because students receive assistance promptly within the general education setting.
Preliminary plans are in place for Willow Hill Elementary to introduce the Response to Intervention Program beginning January 2009. Additional information is forthcoming.
