Response to Intervention
Response to Intervention (RTI) is a multi-tiered approach to help struggling learners. Students' progress is closely monitored at each stage of instruction to determine the need for further research-based instruction and/or intervention in general education, in special education, or both. The four main elements of the RTI framework are high quality instruction for all students, tiered instruction/intervention, ongoing student assessment, and family involvement. RTI is not a program. It is a comprehensive system for organizing a district's effort for improving achievement of all students. The goal of our RTI efforts in the Flagstaff Unified School District is to help coordinate the various district initiatives and obligations in order to best serve students. Whether you're new or familiar with the framework, we encourage you to explore the links to the right as they direct you to some of the latest national information on academic and behavioral RTI. If you have any questions about FUSD's RTI implementation, feel free to contact us.
