RtI/Problem Solving  

RtI employs a tiered method of instructional delivery, in which the core curriculum addresses and meets the needs of most students (Tier 1), additional instruction is provided for those needing supplementary intervention support (Tier 2), and intensive and individualized services are provided for the students who continue to demonstrate more intensive needs (Tier 3). At its foundation, RtI includes measuring performance of all students, and basing educational decisions regarding curriculum, instruction, and intervention intensity on student data.

RtI is an educational service delivery system designed to provide effective instruction for all students. This system uses a comprehensive and preventative problem solving process, which includes: 1) defining areas of need 2) developing a plan 3);implementing the plan, and 4) evaluating the plan.
