On Wednesday, March 5, teachers met in data teams to discuss student-specific progress and challenges. At the elementary level, data teams are organized by grade level, while 7-12 teachers meet by subject area. Using this information, teachers review student performance across a variety of classes, using numerous data points, and make recommendations about which students may need additional academic assistance. This time is also used to ensure that students who need extra challenges are identified as well.
These data team meetings are held twice a month and are an important part of the District’s RtI (Response to Intervention) Plan. This method of academic intervention is used to support struggling students as well as those in need of additional challenges.
At the high school level, if a student is identified as needing additional help, he/she is enrolled in specific math and literacy classes to improve skills, and can take part in a homework lab for additional support. At the elementary and intermediate school level, a thirty-minute enrichment period is built into the schedule each day, which provides students an opportunity to receive additional support or challenges.
