Support/Interventions
Support/Interventions

There are numerous ways we work to support the learning of our students.  For a majority of our students, they traverse our school system at a basic level without the need of specific supports or interventions.  Some of our students need additional support or academic interventions when they are struggling with specific skills or if they already have the skills being taught and needs to be challenged at a higher level.  To the degree possible we strive to individualize the instruction and assessment of all of our students to optimize the time and learning styles that are unique for each of our students.

To the extent possible, we have provided a list of supports and interventions that are utilized at the Middle School to assist all students in their education.  This list is constantly growing or morphing and does not list all supports or interventions.  Where applicable, we have also provided external links that users may use to research further what is being referenced.

RtI:

Response to Intervention is a new approach to supporting students.  The belief is that we will not wait until we know that students are not finding success.  Instead, we will intervene when we discover through observation and assessment that students are not finding success at school.  Interventions can range from informal to very formal research-based approaches to helping students find success. 

There are three tiers of interventions that make up the RtI model called Tier one, Tier two, and Tier three.  A current partial list of interventions used at the Middle School can be seen in the PDF below.  The graphic refers to the way that RtI is used to identify and assist all students in achieving academic success.
