Done right, RTI initiatives almost certainly lead to school improvement. The emphasis on tiers of improvement and resolving student learning needs at group levels necessarily leads to positive changes. Additionally, the fixation that is necessary for even an adequate RtI system will bring about changes that will impact the entire organization. In Illinois, the eligibility determination for special ed, is getting closer to full-fledged RtI requirements. These requirements require documentation from the regular ed setting. Simply establishing the compliance needs for regular ed. will also lead to improvements.

The key is system changes. Isolated interventions are far from a true RtI system and will not create the breadth of improvements that these writers and I insist are possible.
