Response to Intervention is defined as a process of achieving high levels of academic and behavioral success for ALL students. Response to Intervention (RtI) is most effective when implemented simultaneously with Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS). Rigorous implementation of RtI, both academic and behavior, includes a combination of high-quality instructional practices, balanced assessment, and collaboration: all of which are infused with culturally responsive practices.
