Response to Intervention

Dr. Oakley School is in the process of implementing a school-wide Response to Intervention (RTI) framework. “Response to Intervention” refers to a process that emphasizes providing students with the supports that they need to reach their learning potential. RTI is a multi-step approach to providing services and interventions to struggling learners at increasing levels of intensity. The essential elements of an RTI approach are: providing scientific, research-based instruction and interventions; monitoring and measuring student progress in response to the instruction and interventions; and using these measures of student progress to shape instruction and to provide additional support as needed.
