Notes from Niki
The RTI committee met recently and talked about how interventions were going. I think the consensus was that they are going well and kids are making progress, but there is frustration with the progress monitoring we have access to. Some students will benefit from staying put in their intervention, while others will need to move out or into a different intervention. I am going to push our PLC groups back one week (that is reflected on the calendar below) so we can go through some of the NWEA numbers and MAP data as a group and start giving input on what kids need. We will further those discussions and make RTI placement changes on January 2 at 2:00. I know this is a work day, but we all have a stake in RTI- not just those that are teaching intervention groups, and there is very little sustained time when we can all be together. Grades are due at noon, this will still give you a little time to prepare for seeing kids on Thursday.
We will probably do some team building and maybe some reminder PBIS lessons during the Bearcat Time slot on the first couple of days back and then resume interventions on the next Monday.
