Response to Intervention (RTI)
RTI is not a program or a department. RTI is a process to assist students exhibiting difficulties or weaknesses in the classroom with research-based interventions. RTI stands for "Response to Intervention." The interventions provided in Polk School District's RTI process begin in the classroom. All students in Kindergarten through Tenth grades are administered a universal screener three times a year (fall, winter, and spring). Results from the screener, state-mandated tests scores, and classroom performance are reviewed by teachers and school-level RTI teams to determine which students need more help than strategies used in the typical classroom.
