What is RtII in PA?

A Program


Response to Instruction and Intervention (RtII) in Pennsylvania refers to the use of a standards-aligned, comprehensive school improvement and/or multi-tiered system of support for implementing PA’s Standards Aligned System (SAS).  RtII is a school reform strategy that enables early identification and intervention for students needing additional opportunities to learn high level content while providing benchmark students the opportunity to enrich and “grow” their skills and talents.  The intent of RtII is to improve learning as efficiently, effectively and equitably as possible for ALL students, including students with disabilities. Response to Instruction and Intervention is an “Every Ed” standards-aligned initiative.
