Back to School Night 2016

It was great to see everyone last night at Back to School Night.

In the following pictures you can see our reading specialist, Deidre Dowling de Salvador, talking to first grade parents about topic areas such as literacy, Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS), and universal screens (iReady).

A Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) often referee to as Response to Intervention (RtI) is a highly researched best practice. A MTSS/RtI approach allows us the capacity to best draw upon our staff to address individual student needs. Please be mindful of the fact that in utilizing this approach a student's classroom teacher might be different than their reading or math teacher. This affords teachers the opportunity to work with a narrower teachable range, provide interventions, and maximize efficiency. This is not leveled instruction. We are providing flexibly grouped reading instruction that changes based on data. We continue to use universal screening like iReady to become aware of where to focus our instruction and provide interventions for students.
