RTI School Visit

The goals that I have set for myself regarding RTI involve learning more about how to serve tier 2 and 3 students in a non-Title I school. On Wednesday, I had the pleasure of visiting a school in Easley. This school has a great schedule that allows them to intervene daily in math and/or reading. I will share what I learned with leadership and begin looking at our schedule to see if we can implement. PLEASE make sure you set a time for meeting regarding any child that is receiving interventions. That sign up is below.
