Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) / Response to Intervention (RTI)
Response to Intervention (RTI) integrates assessment and intervention within a multi-level prevention system to maximize student achievement and to reduce behavior problems. With RTI, schools identify students at risk for poor learning outcomes, monitor student progress, provide evidence-based interventions and adjust the intensity and nature of those interventions depending on a student’s responsiveness, and identify students with learning disabilities or other disabilities.
Beginning in 2020, AIR shifted its terminology from RTI to MTSS, to align with evolving language and policies in the field.
