Response to Intervention (RtI)

Response to Intervention (RtI) functions as a significant educational strategy or framework designed to identify students who may be at-risk for substandard academic and behavioral performance. Teachers intervene by providing supplemental interventions targeted to the student’s needs. Enterprise Charter School believes:

  1. Teaching should never be a one-size fits all approach and ALL students should receive individualized instruction.
  2. Tier 2 or Tier 3 intervention is NOT a label – it is a response to your child’s need(s).
  3. RtI is a COLLABORATIVE PROCESS and no one teacher will ever determine a student’s level of intervention.

Under New York State regulations, all students will be a part of the Rtl process.   Most children will only need a tier 1 intervention which will take place within the core curriculum.   Some child will require additional time to completely master a concept and will receive both Tier 1 and Tier 2 interventions.   Few children will be nonresponsive to the high-quality instruction in Tier 1 and Tier 2.  Under these circumstances, a child will need more intensive, focused instruction to meet grade level expectations.
