Problem-Solving Team

The problem solving team (PST) at Elkmont High School plays a central role in implementation of Response to Instruction (RTI).  The purpose of RTI in Alabama is to combine core instruction, assessment, and interventions within a multi-tiered system to increase student achievement and to reduce behavior problems.  The PST will help to guide general education intervention services for all students who have academic or behavior difficulties.

Simply put, RTI involves:

  • Teaching students with research-based methods
  • Using formative (daily) assessment to see how well students are learning
  • Adjusting instruction as needed to improved student performance.

Response to Instruction is defined as: "an instructional framework that promotes a well-integrated system connecting general, gifted, supplemental, and special education services in providing high quality, standards-based instruction and intervention that is matched to students' academic, social-emotional, and behavioral needs.  RTI combines cores instruction, assessment, and intervention within a milt-tiered system to increase student achievement and reduce behavior problems."
