The Franklin Special School District uses the Tennessee Department of Education’s Response to Instruction and Intervention (RTI2
) Model to provide academic and behavior support in the general education classroom with the goal of early intervention and prevention before a gap in achievement becomes too great. RTI2
is a school-wide, multi-level prevention system to maximize student achievement. It is a tiered approach to service delivery that provides a systematic and data-based framework through implementation of research-based instructional practices correlated to the individual learner’s needs.
We believe that a consistent, informed intervention program for all students will result in more achievement opportunities. FSSD fully implements a unified RTI2 approach in all grade levels. RTI2 interventions are provided in all schools in both mathematics and reading.
