To do this, we continually review student information and data that tell us how a student is progressing compared to the rate of his/her peers nationally.

The students at Park View, kindergarten through eighth grade, are assessed three times per year using a universal screener. Benchmark scores are used to evaluate and identify students that may need extra support to enhance their educational progress. Our reading intervention services are delivered through a three tier model called Response to Intervention (RtI).

Response to Intervention (RtI) is a general education initiative. Its design is based on a multi-level prevention system to not only maximize student achievement but to place support for students who may indicate a need for a higher level of academic assistance.

With RtI in place, schools can identify students at risk for poor learning outcomes, monitor student progress, provide evidence-based interventions and adjust the intensity and nature of those interventions depending on a student’s responsiveness.

The four essential components of RTI, as outlined by the National Center on Response to Intervention, are:

 The strongest indicator of effective home-school collaboration include open communication and involvement of parents in all stages of the learning process. We encourage you to stay informed about Park View's RtI process.
