Weekly Wednesday Blog

This week, Shorewood teachers and instructional staff members attended building meetings on Wednesday (February 26) after students were dismissed an hour early. At Shorewood High School, staff members reviewed the RtI Guidebook that was approved by the School Board last school year. 

RtI is a method of academic intervention that is used to support students who may be struggling or need acceleration with a particular concept or in a specific subject area. A variety of factors are used to determine if a student is in need of additional support, including grades, MAP (Measures of Academic Progress) test scores as well as teacher input.

In Shorewood, schedules at our elementary and intermediate schools include a 30-minute period to ensure that students are given the additional assistance needed to succeed. The time is also used to provide additional challenges for those students who need them. At the high school level, study labs have been set up to assist students identified as struggling.  (These students are required to attend the study lab during their free periods, or in place of an elective course.) For more information about RtI, click here.

If you have any questions about District’s curriculum, please do not hesitate to contact our Executive Director of Curriculum and Instruction, Dr. Tabia Nicholas, at any time. She can be reached at 414-963-6903 or via email at tnicholas@shorewood.k12.wi.us.
