•  RTI

    Welcome to RTI @Knoles Elementary School

       We are excited to have two RTI Specialists here at Knoles School.  Mrs. Farmer and Mrs. Schlittenhart are in charge of all of our  RTI related needs. In addition to testing and maintaining all student data, they will be working with small groups of students in all the grade levels.

    What is Response to Intervention?
        Response to Intervention (RTI) is a multi-tier approach to the early identification and support of students with learning and behavior needs. The RTI process begins with high-quality instruction and universal screening of all children in the general education classroom. Struggling learners are provided with interventions at increasing levels of intensity to accelerate their rate of learning. These services may be provided by a variety of personnel, including general education teachers, special educators, and specialists. Progress is closely monitored to assess both the learning rate and level of performance of individual students. Educational decisions about the intensity and duration of interventions are based on individual student response to instruction. RTI is designed for use when making decisions in both general education and special education, creating a well-integrated system of instruction and intervention guided by child outcome data.
    Mrs. Farmer and Mrs. Gurne are happy to answer any questions you might have about the RTI process. Please feel free to give them a call or stop by their rooms for a visit.
