The role of the public education system is to prepare all students for success after high school. Response to Instruction and Intervention is designed to empower educators to give every student the opportunity to meet high expectations and the support to reach them.

RTI2 is a three tier framework that promotes recommended practices for an integrated system connecting General and Special Education by the use of high-quality, scientifically research-based instruction and intervention.

As of July 1, 2016, implementation of Tennessee’s RTI2 Framework will be mandatory for all K-12 public schools, in all grade levels. Therefore, RTI2 will be implemented in high schools for the first time during the 2016-17 school year.

Educators can find instructional resources and tools in the Instructional Resources page. New guidance for high school implementation, including training materials and planning resources, can be found under the Administrators link.
