RTI at Medina Valley ISD
Medina Valley ISD is committed to implementing a Multi-Tiered System of Supports, also known as Response to Intervention (RTI). MTSS is a multi-tier approach to support students with learning and behavior needs. MTSS begins with high-quality instruction and universal screening of all children in the general education classroom. Struggling learners are provided with interventions at increasing levels of intensity to accelerate their rate of learning. These services may be provided by a variety of personnel, including general education teachers, special educators, and specialists. Progress is closely monitored to assess both the learning rate and level of performance of individual students. Educational decisions about the intensity and duration of interventions are based on individual student response to instruction. RTI is designed for use when making decisions in both general education and special education, creating a well-integrated system of instruction and intervention guided by student data.
