Response to Intervention / Multi-Tiered System of Supports


Problem Solving Model

Each school is expected to create and support an RtI leadership team that utilizes the Problem-Solving (PS) model to meet the academic and behavioral needs of all students.

The PS process is used to plan, evaluate, and revise all tiers of instruction.  The four step PS process includes a structured format that is used when analyzing possible reasons for lack of progress in a student or group of students’ academic or behavioral achievement in order to plan and deliver interventions. Utilizing a structured PS approach when exploring, defining, and prioritizing concerns helps the team make efficient use of time and increase the probability that the appropriate interventions are selected.
