The purpose of this study was to investigate the current understanding that parents have of RTI. Many schools follow the RTI process in order to help a student who is not meeting the prescribed academic standards, and who is falling behind in a grade level. The proposed study addressed the problem of the current documentation being used with parents. The knowledge that parents currently have of RTI was explored through a short survey consisting of five questions. Based on the information gathered from the surveys, the research examined possible solutions to improve communication and provided ways to make the process and documentation of RTI more parent-friendly. This will allow for parents to be better informed on their children’s academic progress.
