The Wisconsin Response to Intervention (RtI) Center was created to assist Wisconsin’s educational systems to build capacity, adopt and implement high-quality practices, make informed decisions, ensure sustainability of efforts, and increase success for all students. The Wisconsin Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) Network operates within the Wisconsin RtI Center with a specific focus on behavior.

Consistent foundation for student success

The center provides professional development and technical assistance to help schools operationalize implementation of equitable, multi-level systems of supports. The center offers statewide training to establish consistent foundations upon which schools should build their systems.

Considering the research that has linked academics and behavior achievement, the center recommends the implementation of an integrated equitable, multi-level system of supports. The center’s vision, mission, values, preferred future, and goals were built around this recommendation.


All Wisconsin students will learn and be successful in life.


Our mission is to build the capacity of Wisconsin schools to develop and sustain an equitable, multi-level system of supports to ensure the success for all students.


We believe schools should ensure their structures and culture allow for an equitable, multi-level system of supports for both academics and behavior.

Wisconsin RtI Center strategic plan goals

  1. The Wisconsin RtI Center will identify and define essential components of a fully integrated equitable (culturally responsive), multi-level system of supports that can be implemented in schools.
  2. The Wisconsin RtI Center will operate as a professional learning community and implement an internal continuous improvement approach/model that guides processes and procedures.
  3. The Wisconsin RtI Center will collaboratively increase internal capacity in schools, districts, and geographical areas to ensure equitable supports for all students through well-defined equitable (culturally responsive), multi-level systems of supports.
