Response to Instruction and Intervention (RTI2)

A general education initiative, Response to Instruction and Intervention, or RTI2, is a comprehensive framework for supporting students academically that focuses on high-quality instruction and evidence-based interventions. Williamson County Schools follows all RTI guidelines as set by the State of Tennessee and our implementation is aligned to the framework detailed by the TDOE.


In 2016, the general assembly passed Chapter 1058 of the Public Acts of 2016 (i.e., “Say Dyslexia” law), which requires school districts to screen for characteristics of dyslexia through their existing Response to Instruction and Intervention (RTI²) procedures and to provide “dyslexia-specific tiered interventions” for students that demonstrate a need. The following are frequently asked questions and answers regarding the “Say Dyslexia” law
