From the Desk of Branson Townsend:
*The Decatur County School System is committed to helping all children succeed. We have many ways to help children who are struggling to learn and who need additional supports to be successful. Response to Instruction and Intervention (RTI²) is one form of support.
What is RTI²?
RTI2 is a multi-tiered delivery system that uses a data-driven problem-solving model to identify specific student needs and match appropriate instructional strategies.
In Tennessee, the Response to Instruction and Intervention (RTI²) Framework is a component of TNCORE. The TNCORE implementation plan has three legs with student achievement at the center:
What does the RTI² Framework look like?
The RTI² Framework has three tiers. Each tier provides differing levels of support.
Here are a few ways parents can support what their child is doing in school:
Talk to your child’s teacher or principal for more information about how RTI² is being implemented in your child’s school.
Each citizen of Decatur County is a stakeholder in the Decatur County School System, and on behalf of the Decatur County Board of Education, I want to thank you for supporting our schools. Let us all take pride in Decatur County and Decatur County Schools as we strive to meet the academic, social, emotional, and physical needs of our children in order for each one of them to become a productive and responsible citizen.
