Response to Intervention (RTI) is a framework of service delivery for addressing the needs of all students (within both general and special education) by embedding best practice and differentiated, evidence-based instruction in the classroom, and using scientific, research-based intervention (IDOE, 2009). "Indiana's Vision of Response to Intervention', the first Special Report in this three-part series issued by the Center for Evaluation & Education Policy (CEEP), introduced the RTI framework as an effective mechanism in the prevention and intervention of both academic and behavioral problems for all students in K-12 education. The report discussed the research and policy impetus for the use of the RTI framework, as well as what the state of Indiana is currently doing to support this new initiative. Specifically, Indiana's Department of Education (IDOE) has devised a framework of RTI that addresses six core components on which to focus: (1) evidence-based curriculum, instruction, intervention, and extension; (2) assessment and progress monitoring; (3) data-based decision making; (4) leadership; (5) family, school, and community partnerships; and (6) cultural responsivity. This second Special Report addresses in greater detail the IDOE's first three core components of RTI as conceived by the IDOE. (Contains 1 figure, 2 endnotes and 10 web resources.)
