Prescott School District, 1220 St. Croix St., Prescott, WI 54021, 715.262.5059

The Prescott School District takes a proactive approach to providing students additional support and assistance in the areas of Reading and Math through an RTI (response to intervention) approach. While the RTI process is required for all students being evaluated for Specific Learning Disabilities, we believe RTI is a way to provide ALL students with the supports they need to demonstrate success.

Within an RTI system, teachers and staff regularly review student assessments in a collaborative manner. Working together, they look at each student individually, and as part of the class and grade, to determine if there is an intervention need.

Meeting Benchmarks:
Those students who are meeting benchmarks will continue to receive high quality instruction in the classroom setting. These students will continue to be monitored through universal screening several times per school year to ensure they continue to meet benchmarks.
 
Below Benchmarks:
Those students who are below benchmark will have an intervention designed based on their needs, parent/guardian input, and teacher recommendation. This may include additional or varied instruction in the regular education classroom or during Cardinal Time. These students may be monitored more frequently to assess student growth and evaluated a possible need for additional evaluation.
 
Above Benchmarks:
Those students above benchmark may receive additional academic challenges based on student needs, parent/guardian input, and teacher recommendation. This may involve additional or varied instruction in the regular education classroom or during Cardinal Time (Extensions/ LAMP).

We believe that our Response to Intervention (RTI) program is most effective if students can receive help as soon as teachers recognize an area of need. Students in need may receive additional support during a block of time set aside within the regularly scheduled day. Most students will not receive additional services, but for those who do, changes or adjustments will take place on an ongoing basis. Should any major schedule changes occur, parents will be notified.

Please contact your building principal, director of pupil services, or curriculum director if you have any questions. You may also go to the Wisconsin RTI Center for an overview of RTI.
