Response to Intervention (RTI)

Response to Intervention (RTI): The Georgia Student Achievement Pyramid of Interventions is the process of aligning appropriate assessment with purposeful instruction for all students. In Georgia, Response to Intervention is based in the general education classroom where teachers routinely implement a strong and rigorous standards-based learning environment.

The tiered approach to providing layers of intervention for students needing support requires a school wide common understanding of the Georgia Performance Standards (GPS), assessment practices, and instructional pedagogy. Georgia’s RTI process includes several key components:

  • A 4-Tier delivery model designed to provide support matched to student need through the implementation of standards-based classrooms.
  • Evidence-based instruction as the core of classroom pedagogy.
  • Evidence-based interventions utilized with increasing levels of intensity based on progress monitoring.
  • The use of a variety of ongoing assessment data to determine which students are not meeting success academically and/or behaviorally.
  • Data Teams in each school serve as the driving force for instructional decision making in the building.
  • Purposeful allocation of instructional resources based on student assessment data.

All students participate in general education learning. Students requiring interventions to meet individual learning expectations will receive support through a systematic and purposeful process. The number of students requiring interventions will decrease as the level of intensity of the intervention increases. For more, access the Response to Intervention web page on the Georgia Department of Education's website.
