What is SRBI?
SRBI is a federally mandated instructional system designed to ensure that all students receive targeted instruction that meets their individual academic and social-emotional needs. Specifically, SRBI provides a clearly defined framework for support to students who are struggling to learn.
This support initiative is referred to as Response to Intervention, or RTI, on a national level. Connecticut has adopted its own Response to Intervention mandate, referred to as SRBI, or Scientific Research-Based Intervention.
Connecticut’s SRBI mandate requires each school district to have a systematic process for early identification of all students who demonstrate a lack of progress toward meeting grade level standards and a clearly articulated system of support designed to catch them up. The ultimate goal of SRBI is to provide a seamless structure of instruction, on-going assessment, and targeted intervention as needed so that all students experience continuous growth and achievement.
