Welcome to the one-stop shop for what you need to know about the Response to Intervention (RtI) framework in New Mexico.
What is Response to Intervention (RtI)?
RtI is an organizational framework by which schools assess student needs, strategically allocate resources, and design and deliver instruction to all students within the school.
An RtI framework addresses student achievement and positive behavior for all students by the use of appropriate, research-based instruction and/or interventions. Student progress is monitored over time and then that data is used to guide instructional decisions and behavioral strategies.
New Mexico's RtI framework is supported by state rule and is known as The Three-Tier Model of Student Intervention. It consists of a three-tier, problem-solving model that uses a set of increasingly intensive academic and/or behavioral supports based on the data collected from progress monitoring of student response to the instruction and/or intervention. State rule requires that schools implement the model and operate using the state's guidance manual available on this website.
An RtI framework is not a student placement model, a location, a classroom, a class/course, a computer program/software, a teacher, a student, a boxed program, a special education initiative, or a quick fix for low achievement. So do not mistakenly say such things as We have six RtI kids, We have RtI classes, We are RtI-ing her, or We are "doing" RtI.
