MTSS/RTI: (Response To Intervention) provides a safety net for at-risk scholars, who at some point could not receive additional support until after they were already failing. RTI (Response to Intervention) is a multi-tiered (MTSS) approach to the early detection and support of scholars with learning and/or behavioral needs. The Scholar Support Team (SST) is a problem-solving process in every Georgia school. Its purpose is to find ways around roadblocks to success for any scholar referred to it.
Section 504: of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 has been strongly emphasized by the federal government as applicable to the schools' handling of certain scholar difficulties. SST documentation can meet most Section 504 requirements.
