YVHS Feeder Pattern Proposal - RtI.pdf
Summary: Principals of the schools in the Ygnacio Valley High feeder pattern (Cambridge, Fair Oaks, Meadow Homes and Ygnacio Valley elementary schools; Oak Grove Middle School; and Ygnacio Valley High School) would like to attend the Pyramid Response to Intervention (RtI) Institute sponsored by Solution Tree. The Institute will be held in Salem, Oregon from June 27-29, 2011. Response to Intervention (RtI) is at the very core of the MDUSD goals by providing a systematic approach to closing the achievement gap. RtI is a preventative model that systematically identifies a specific learning deficit and then provides fluid and flexible support in a very targeted and timely manner through tiers/levels of prevention and intervention. It addresses the problem before the gap of learning grows too big. RtI supports the work our schools are already doing in their Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) and provides effective practices that support students who require preteaching, reteaching or enrichment for those who have already mastered a grade level standard. The goal of the YVHS Feeder is to not only develop a strategic tiered system of support within our schools, but to develop ways to articulate our systems of support throughout elementary, middle and high school. Principals will also be sharing what they learn with other administrators. See the attached Proposal for more information.
Funding: Cambridge, Fair Oaks, Ygnacio Valley ES, Oak Grove MS (Title I); Ygnacio Valley HS (Title I/ARRA); Meadow Homes (QEIA)
