Our schools were built on a model for school success that includes a strong focus on leadership, learning environment, pedagogy and curriculum, assessment and student and family support systems. As we’ve developed, we’ve enhanced this model through our involvement with a school wide Positive Behavior Intervention Systems (PBIS) focus and a Response to Intervention (RTI) model that includes supports for reading, math and behavior.
