While RTI originally began in elementary school settings to change the way students are identified for special education services, it is now making its way into middle schools and high schools. Special education eligibility requirements have changed and the identification process no longer is limited to ability vs. discrepancy requirements. The RTI process requires highly qualified teachers to implement research-proven best practices to identify students that fail to achieve for reasons other than access to quality instructional practices. It is designed to accelerate student learning and progress is monitored closely at each level. The goal is for the school to intervene for all students, and start helping all students before anyone falls really far behind.
