Literacy and Response Intervention (RtI)

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 RTIapproach in all grade levels.  RTI2  interventions are provided in all schools in both mathematics and reading.
