National Center on Response to Intervention


To ensure that the implementation of Response to Intervention (RTI) strategies effectively addresses the needs of all students, the National Center on Response to Intervention (NCRTI) recommends that schools and districts establish leadership teams that focus on issues affecting culturally and linguistically diverse students. New leadership teams can be added to what already exists, or current leadership teams can be refocused on these issues. Leadership teams should meet regularly and include diverse representation across areas of professional expertise (e.g., general education, bilingual education, and special education) and cultural experience (e.g., parents, community members, and others with rich relationships and knowledge of student backgrounds). Although most schools already have some form of student support or problem-solving teams in place, these teams are not always fully prepared—professionally and/or culturally—to address the needs of specific populations of students.
