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.
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.
