• Understanding RtI (Response to Intervention)

    Our classrooms are filled with students who show progress and promise each year. Still, in every school across the nation, there are students who struggle to learn. Educators, researchers, and policymakers have long searched for the best ways to help these students.  Federal laws, including the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA, 2015) and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEIA, 2004) are designed to guide school districts in supporting students who struggle with general education curriculum and instruction. Today’s focus has shifted to a research-based approach called Response to Intervention (RtI). Lincolnwood School District 74 utilizes an RtI framework to support students from kindergarten through eighth grade.
