Gather Your Teams & Mark Your Calendars!

We are excited to announce that we will be hosting a two-day RTI Core Team Training this July! Our learning will be facilitated by Solution Tree facilitator, Geri Parscale.

During this two day workshop we will work collaboratively to reestablish the "why" behind RTI, streamline our processes, and develop a plan to effectively communicate with our teachers during Fall Kick Off.

Each Principal must select a "Core Team" of teachers, counselors and specialists to bring with them to this workshop. We have reserved 5 spots for each campus.
