Mrs. Jodi Chilson

I earned my Bachelor's Degree from Mansfield University in Elementary Education and my Master's Degree from Walden University in Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment. My role is to help assist Administration, teachers, parents but more importantly,students, in the RtII framework. Teaching students strategies to get through academic struggles as well as life, are important tools to have in one's toolbox in order to preserve and move through the problem in order to get to the other end.

What Is RtII (Response to Instruction and Intervention)?

Response to Intervention (RTI) or MTSS- (Multi-Tier System of Support) is a multi-tier approach to the early identification and support of students with learning and behavior needs. The RTI process begins with high-quality instruction and universal screening of all children in the general education classroom. Struggling learners are provided with interventions at increasing levels of intensity to accelerate their rate of learning. These services may be provided by a variety of personnel, including general education teachers, special educators, and specialists. Progress is closely monitored to assess both the learning rate and level of performance of individual students. Educational decisions about the intensity and duration of interventions are based on individual student response to instruction. RTI is designed for use when making decisions in both general education and special education, creating a well-integrated system of instruction and intervention guided by child outcome data.
