We will continue with week 2 of AMP this week. Please check the S: Drive for your grade levels meeting date.

We will be discussing be discussing Tutoring, RTI, and Scheduling...Focused around the question:

Our needs continue to be high in the area of RTI/Tutoring and our Title and Local budget continues to shrink creating less funds for external intervention.

What are some sustainable structural changes we could make in order to ensure our students needs are being met?
