Tier I Interventions
Tier I interventions are:
•Intervention = specific, targeted remedial techniques (McCook, 2006, p.51)
•Interventions are strategic, purposeful adult actions that prevent learning difficulties and accelerate, and/or enrich student learning.(Cappello, et al. 2008)
When referring a struggling student for Tier II services, Tier I services do not stop. Keep recording your interventions on your Tier I Documentation form. You should NEVER submit your original Tier I form for referral. Submit a only a copy. Whenever I request a copy of your Tier I interventions, I only need that form.
While we are blessed to have amazing interventionists, the ultimate responsibility for student progress lies with you.
We worked together to create a vision statement that is a true representation of what we believe is the destiny for Hajek.
Hajek Elementary: a community school focused on providing individualized instruction to foster growth mindsets for all students.
How do you see yourself in making our vision a reality?
