Response to Intervention at Ho‘okele Elementary
Ho‘okele Elementary is committed to providing students with the knowledge and skills to help them perform at their greatest potential. As part of our Comprehensive Student Support System and one of the priority strategies identified by the Hawai‘i Department of Education, the Response to Intervention (RTI) model will be utilized as one of the key strategies to support student success.
What is RTI?
Response to Intervention (RTI) is a model of support to address the learning needs of all children. The RTI process begins with a universal screening that identifies specific areas of need and is supported with targeted high-quality instruction and timely interventions. Students are provided with intense interventions or enrichment lessons by qualified teachers and their progress is closely monitored throughout the year.
Response to Intervention Time
At Ho‘okele Elementary, we understand that every student is unique. To address the different learning rates and performance levels, we have developed a school-wide RTI system that will provide the support, resources, and instruction needed to help every student succeed. Throughout the year, all teachers work in Professional Learning Communities to analyze and reflect on student data, share proven research-based strategies and methods, as well as set learning goals for the students. During RTI, all students are provided with interventions in small group settings 4-5 times per week during their grade-level common intervention time. During these interventions, the students receive direct instruction utilizing the i-Ready® web-based program and other supplemental resources. The Ho‘okele school community is committed to challenging all students to reach their full potential.
