Math

Tier 2 and Tier 3 math SRBI take place in addtition to the regularly scheduled math time.  A student is determined to be in need of these levels of math support in several ways.  District assessments (i-Ready Math) are given school wide in September, February, and May.  Discussions with classroom teachers are ongoing and referrals are noted.  If the data shows that the student has significant weaknesses, individual diagnostic testing is done by SRBI teachers.  Meetings with administration take place in September, February, and June to review data and make placement decisions.  At this time students may need to begin initial or continued Tier 2 support, move to Tier 3 support implemented by an SRBI interventionist, or be exited from support services. 

Instructional materials consist of a combination of resources in text form or online, individualized to meet each students' needs. Math Recovery is utilized with Kindergarten and Grade One as well as Ready Math.  The main resource for Grades Two and up is an extension of the Ready Math Program.
