ACS and Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates
Asheboro City Schools continues to work with local public health officials during the ongoing COVID-19 global pandemic. We are developing our re-entry plans for the 2020-2021 school year to ensure the safety of our students and staff. We will update the following pages throughout the summer as our plans become more definitive. 

Response to Intervention (RTI)

Responsiveness to Instruction (RTI) is an initiative that seeks to ensure that all children have access to high quality instruction and that struggling learners - including those with learning disabilities - are identified, supported and served early and effectively.  Through a multi-tiered approach RTI closely monitors student progress at each stage of intervention to determine the need for further research-based instruction and/or intervention in general education, in special education or both. RTI aims to:
  • focus on instruction/intervention rather than on what is wrong with the student
  • focus on the solution rather than the problem
  • focus on addressing the needs of all students, not just those with labels
  • focus on all educators being responsible for all children
RTI refers to a process that monitors how well students respond to changes in instruction.  This process is a way of providing assistance to students before they fail.  The goal is to quickly identify those in need of help, provide strategies and/or interventions that have shown to be effective with other students, then monitor their progress to determine the efficacy of the strategy and/or intervention.  If an intervention is not working, then the intensity, frequency and/or duration of the intervention needs to change or a different intervention needs to be used and monitored for effectiveness.
