Response to Invervention

Response to Intervention is all about meeting the learning needs of all of our students and helping them to make progress, no matter where their inital starting points are. 

High Quality Instruction

New Common Core Standards in reading and math are being phased in: www.corestandards.org

Grade level benchmarks of the Wisconsin Standards are located on the District network on the r: drive in the folder "Curriculum documents", and copies of the Wisconsin Academic Standards are also on the r: drive in the folder "Academic Standard".

See Wausaukee Curriculum page for more information regarding research-based instructional practices .

NEW!: Wausaukee school district will be using Eclipse software for curriculum mapping, and State assessment item analysis 

Wisconsin's Vision for RtI

"In Wisconsin's vision for RtI, the three essential elements of high quality instruction, balanced assessment, and collaboration systematically interact within a multi-level system of support to provide the structures to increase success for all students. Culturally responsive practices are central to an effective RtI system and are evi-dent within each of the three essential elements. In a multi-level system of support, schools employ the three essential elements of RtI at varying levels of intensity based upon student responsiveness to instruction and intervention. These elements do not work in isolation. Rather, all components of the visual model inform and are impacted by the others; this relationship forms Wisconsin’s vision for RtI. "

Balanced Assessment

STAR: Currently the Elementary School-wide Title I program screens all students in the elementary using the STAR reading and math.  Teacher and student access to STAR


Measures of Academic Progress (MAP)

MAP is a useful tool to guide and inform instruction when using the DesCartes Learning Continuum which matches learning goals with RIT scores by goal area within each subject.  The Dynamic Reporting Suite prints goal setting sheets for each student at the beginning of the year which gives students the "typical growth" target for their grade and score and allows students to establish a higher goal.   The DesCartes continuum will provide teachers with specific skills students at every Tier in RtI need to have reinforced and introduced.  Students operating at the high end of the spectrum may show little or no growth in their classes but by looking at the DesCartes learning goals teachers can identify items these students need to be introduced.  

In the context of RtI, MAPs are great progress monitoring tools.  There is the added advantage that NWEA is the record keeper and the individual student progress report gives a longitudinal look at the progress the student is making.  In addition, NWEA has done alignment studies every two or three years which gives the fall or previous spring RIT scores students need to achieve if they are expected to be proficient on the WKCE when October and November come around.
