The "How-To" of RtI2
RtI2 is not a packaged program that can be learned in a single training session. It is a framework that aligns all resources within a school and District in a collaborative manner to create a single, well-integrated system of instruction and intervention that are guided by student outcome data. It fits within a school-wide process of early intervention and prevention of academic and behavioral problems.
RtI2 involves general education teachers working together and jointly using their resources and expertise to improve behavior and academic achievement for all students, including English Learners (EL), Standard English Learners (SEL), gifted, and students with disabilities. Within an RtI2 system, students are regularly assessed on how well they respond to good first teaching. Click below to read more from CalSTATE Technical Assistance and Training:
