Response to Instruction and Intervention (RTII)
Students participate in universal screening tests in reading and math three times each year. Each teacher also assesses students’ reading and math performance regularly in the classroom. This data is analyzed regularly to drive instruction and to determine if additional support is needed.
Students in need of support may receive push-in or pull-out services for additional reading and math support, by certified teachers. Parents are notified when their child qualifies for this support and receive regular reports regarding their child’s performance.
