Response to Intervention (RtI)

3 months ago

What is RtI?

Response to Intervention (RtI) is a general education framework that provides structure for schools to provide all students with research-based, differentiated, high quality multi-tiered systems of support and instruction. The process identifies students with academic or behavioral needs and thus provides specific, targeted interventions to match the needs. 

The L55 RtI Reference Guide is a step-by-step guide for completing each phase of the RtI process in the Frontline Education/Enrich System.  


Interventions are categorized below by the tier of intervention intensity and reading area of concern.  All interventions are also available through the RtI Program in the Frontline Education/Enrich system.

If you have additional research-based interventions you would like the RtI Team to consider adding, please submit information using the Intervention Recommendation form.
