Response to Intervention

Response to Intervention RTI

Response to Intervention (RtI)


Milltown School District has developed a three-tiered Response to Intervention (RtI) model as a process of implementing high-quality research-based instruction, monitoring student progress, and adjusting instruction to meet the needs of every learner. Students who need additional support may be referred to the Intervention and Referral Services (I&RS) team for more targeted interventions.

Services outlined in our RtI model may not apply to every student at every grade level.

I&RS:Intervention and Referral Services (I&RS).  If a student is not making sufficient progress given the typical Tier 1 and 2 interventions, then the teacher may seek assistance from the I&RS team.  The I&RS team meets monthly to brainstorm strategies and interventions to best meet individual student learning styles. Referral to the I&RS team is a proactive response to teacher or parent concerns about student progress. I&RS cases are kept open for one school year, and may be reopened by the following year's teacher, if sufficient progress is not evident.


Tier 3:  Interventions at this tier become much more individualized or take on a greatly reduced teacher to student instructional ratio.   Intervention may include academic modifications, targeted workbooks, study guides, behavior plans, individual counseling, a 504 Plan, Learning Assistance Plan, or a school partnership with a private counselor.  Students may also be enrolled in Reading Recovery at this tier, or be scheduled into tutoring in lieu of an elective at the middle school.


A Child Study Team evaluation may be recommended by the I&RS team, if the student has not shown a satisfactory response to interventions outlined in his/her action plan.
