Response to Intervention: Meeting the Personalized Learning Needs of All Students

With unprecedented federal funding available for proven programs that will set children on a path to academic success, more and more of the nation's schools are turning to the educational framework of Response to Intervention (RTI) to improve individual student outcomes. Response to Intervention refers to a three-tiered academic intervention system designed to help all children learn by identifying problems earlier, monitoring student progress through data, and applying appropriate learning strategies to keep all students - no matter their learning needs - on track.

According to the National Center on Response to Intervention, educators, policymakers, and researchers see RTI as an essential component for integrating instructional and assessment components into an effective prevention system.

"We know that despite huge budget cutbacks school districts are facing increased demands to develop an RTI framework that raises test scores, addresses the needs of English language learners, and provides support for every teacher - yet each district, each school, each classroom is different. That's why we want to partner with educators to understand their needs and customize an RTI model that will provide the right solution at the right time for every student," said Pearson CEO of School Curriculum Peter Cohen.
