Middle School Interventions
Maggie Cummings: Middle School RTI Specialist
RtI/MTSS focuses on high-quality instruction and intervention for all our students. RtI/MTSS has three tiers that build upon one another. Each tier provides increasing levels of support. After assessing our students using NWEA and looking at other data sources, we evaluate whether or not an individual student needs additional support. Below is a table showing the increasing levels of support and the instruction/intervention available at each tier.

Instruction includes: Core program materials, Six Minute Solution, Benchmark 3x per year
