Welcome to OASIS
This website provides multiple implementation and outcome data sources to help evaluate the effectiveness of your RTI system. The data is intended to help you identify strengths and areas in need of improvement within your school district's RTI system. It is provided to you as part of your district's participation in the Oregon Response to Instruction & Intervention Project.
The purpose of ORTIi is to provide technical assistance to Oregon school districts implementing Response to Intervention (RTI) systems that provide targeted, effective instruction to meet the needs of all students and provide the framework to identify students with Specific Learning Disabilities (SLD). The focus of the project is on literacy, early intervention, and the use of evidenced-based practices. Beginning in 2014-2015 the project will also be supporting schools in the implementation of RTI systems in grades 6-8 and in the area of early math instruction.
The initiative began in 2005-2006 when the Oregon Department of Education (ODE) contracted with the Tigard-Tualatin School District (TTSD), an early adopter of RTI, to work with other school districts to develop Response to Intervention systems for use in identifying students with SLD. TTSD has carried the contract since its inception. Four districts were in the first Cadre 2005-2006. Since that time, ORTIi has worked with over 70 districts in Oregon, and has consulted with many more districts and educational agencies in other states and internationally.
