Integrates RtI for academics and RtI for behavior • Which: recognizes the reciprocal influence academic performance and social/emotional/behavior performance has on each other Tier 1: Academic & behavioral supports for all students.
Tier 2: Supplemental targeted academic & behavioral supports for 10-15% of students Tier 3: Intensive supplemental academic & behavioral supports for 5% of students
