Reaching Every Student With the
RTI at Work™ Model Webinar
December 10, 2014 | 6:00 p.m. ET
Presented by Mike Mattos and Paula Rogers
Hallsville Independent School District, located in northeast Texas, primarily serves students that have been traditionally underserved in school. Eight years ago, the district began the journey to become a professional learning community. Staff worked together to provide every student with access to a rigorous curriculum, effective initial teaching, and systemic interventions and enrichment through the RTI at Work™ model.
Four years after beginning this process, the district earned the state’s highest accountability rating as a result of staff efforts, and student achievement continues to be high. Kindergarten end-of-year Developmental Reading Assessment (DRA) scores increased from 77% in 2011 to 92% in 2014. Both the fifth- and eighth-grade math scores indicated a 98% passing rate (19% above the state average). District reading scores were 91% in grade five (15% above the state average) and 93% in grade eight (11% above the state average). The district was also honored to be included in a research study supported by the United States Department of Education about effective RTI practices.
Join Mike Mattos, RTI at Work™ cocreator, and Paula Rogers, deputy superintendent of Hallsville and Solution Tree RTI at Work™ associate, for this complimentary webinar. They will discuss how the staff at Hallsville successfully embedded the PLC at Work™ and RTI at Work™ processes into their daily work.
