Response to Intervention (RtI)

In Lago Vista ISD, Response to Intervention (RtI) follows a locally developed four-tiered model to determine and deliver services to address both academics and behavior. The State defines RtI as the practice of meeting the academic and behavioral needs of all students through a variety of services containing the following key elements:  

  • High-quality instruction and scientific research-based tiered interventions aligned with individual student need;
  • Frequent monitoring of student progress to make results-based academic and/or behavioral decisions; and
  • Application of student response data to important educational decisions (such as those regarding placement, intervention, curriculum, and instructional goals and methodologies). 

The instructional approaches used within the general education setting should result in academic and/or behavioral progress for the majority of the students. Struggling students are identified using data-based student progress monitoring and provided intensive instruction. The use of scientifically validated curricula and teaching methods expected in an RtI model leads to data-based school improvement.
