Response to Instruction and Intervention (RTI²)
RTI² is a multi-tiered delivery system that uses a data-driven problem-solving model to identify specific student need and match appropriate instructional strategies. In Tennessee, the Response to Instruction and Intervention (RTI²) Framework is a component of TNCORE. The TNCORE implementation plan has three legs with student achievement at the center:
Assessment alignment and transparency
Instructional materials and curriculum
Quality training and meaningful support
Universal screening of all students is part of the RTI² framework, which ensures that students who may need additional support or other types of instruction can have access. Elizabethton City Schools began implementing RTI² years before it became a state-mandated program. Our program was used in a training model for the state, and two of our schools were referenced as best practice models.
