Tier 1 Instruction: The general instruction all students receive at their grade level
Tier 2 Instruction: Targeted intervention to a small group of students within the classroom setting with the goal of addressing specific student needs
Tier 3 Instruction: Intensive intervention provided by a specialist provided when Tier 2 instruction does not produce the needed results
Response to Intervention (RtI) is for students with and without disabilities who are struggling with reading, math, and/or behavior despite receiving high-quality instruction. An RtI plan allows teachers to pinpoint how they can best support their students and help them reach grade-level expectations. It sets in place a specific intervention plan with a way to measure the student's progress toward their specific academic/behavioral goal.
