Response to Intervention
Response to Intervention (RtI) is an approach that schools use to help all students, including struggling learners. The RtI approach gives Texas students opportunities to learn and work at their grade level. The idea is to help all students be successful.

RtI Blueprints

The National Association of State Directors of Special Education (NASDSE) and the Council of Administrators of Special Education believe there is a need for additional guidance to help school administrators focus on the parts of a framework or blueprint in order to implement RtI. These documents provide that guidance to assist districts and schools as they establish effective RtI programs. The Texas Education Agency expresses its appreciation to NASDSE for extending permission for allowing additional state and national resources to this state-specific version to support RtI implementation in Texas schools. This document includes current Texas resources in blue.
