Our Response to Intervention
Mission Valley's Response to Intervention
Response to Intervention (RTI) is a framework of instruction that we use at Mission Valley for early identification and support of our students with learning or behavioral needs. RTI is a tiered approach that begins with a universal screening of all our students.
All Kindergarteners through 3rd graders participate in a walk to intervention session. The students attend different classes that focus on their individual needs including letters and sounds, phonics decoding skills, fluency, retelling a story, and vocabulary development. Fourth, fifth, and Sixth graders who qualify receive targeted reading instruction based on their needs. The groups are flexible and change regularly to ensure that students are provided with the correct level of instruction.
