Response to Intervention (RtI) at Red Hook
Under the New York State Commissioner’s Regulations of Parts 100, 117, and 200, the Board of Education of the Red Hook Central School District establishes Response to Intervention (RtI) as a K-12 school-wide system of providing high quality, research-based instructional and behavioral intervention to meet the diverse needs of all learners. RtI is delivered to all students in the general education setting by qualified personnel. According to the NYS Guidance for Response to Intervention (University of the State of New York, the State Education Department (Oct. 2010),
RtI represents an important educational strategy to close achievement gaps for all students, including students at risk, students with disabilities, English Language Learners, by preventing smaller learning problems from becoming insurmountable gaps. It has also been shown to lead to more appropriate identification of and interventions for students with learning disabilities. An effective RtI model is a multi-tiered, early prevention continuum designed to improve outcomes for all students.
