Wrapping up W.I.N. Groups

Chinook Staff and Students will be wrapping up our WIN Groups this week. W.I.N. Groups are apart of our overall MTSS instructional structure. W.I.N. groups are 40 minute daily intervention groups where students would rotate to individualized instruction.

Thank you STAFF AND STUDENTS for working so hard this year.

We have completed 4 rotations this year...

  • SEL/Behavior Reset: August 15-August 2
  • W.I.N. Rotation 1: September 19-September 20 (5 weeks)
  • W.I.N.Rotation 2: October 31- December 21 (8 weeks)

  • W.I.N.Rotation 3: January 23-March 9 (7 weeks)
  • W.I.N.Rotation 4: March 20-May 12 (8 weeks)

MTSS stands for “Multi-Tiered System of Supports.” This means that on a daily basis, ASD staff work together to support every student academically, behaviorally, and socially based on ongoing needs. Targeted Instruction is called "What I Need" (WIN). Link HERE to read more about the District's MTSS structure.
