Fairhope Middle School’s
Response to Instruction Team
RTI is a framework for ensuring that student’s academic, social-emotional, and behavioral needs are met. Rigorous implementation of RTI includes a combination of high quality instruction, assessment, and evidence-based intervention. Comprehensive RTI implementation will contribute to more meaningful identification of learning and behavioral problems, improve instructional quality and provide all students with the best opportunities to succeed in school. Every school has students with academic and/or behavior skill deficits. These deficits will range from minor to severe and in order to meet the needs of these students, schools need interventions that can address their skill deficits. Students receiving interventions are progress monitored in order to determine if the interventions are effective.
