Multi-Level System of Support
For more details about RtI and implementation in the Evansville Community School District, please see the MLSS Student Servicing Handbook, or contact the principal at your child's school.
Historically, school reform efforts emphasized collaboration, high-quality instruction, and balanced assessment. RtI provides a systematic approach that integrates these three essential elements within a multi-level system of support to maximize student achievement.
A multi-level system of support is the practice of systematically providing differing levels of intensity of supports (interventions/additional challenges, collaborative structures, monitoring of student progress) based upon student responsiveness to instruction and intervention. Within an RtI system, schools:
- Use data to identify students at risk for poor learning outcomes or in need of increased challenge
- Monitor student progress
- Intervene based on student need
- Adjust the intensity and nature of interventions or challenges depending on a student’s responsiveness
Factors, such as effective leadership, meaningful family and community involvement and data-based decision-making enhance a multi-level system of support (WI RtI Center).
