Mead Elementary recognized by Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction
For the Rapids City Times
MADISON – The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, and the Wisconsin RtI Center, has recognized Mead Elementary School for their implementation of Reading at the Bronze level.
The program is noted for successfully building a school-wide equitable, multi-level system of supports aimed at closing achievement gaps and increasing the number of students who graduate ready for college, or a career. National research shows that full implementation of an equitable system leads to improved student outcomes.
Organizers say that by establishing equitable, multi-level systems of supports, Wisconsin schools like Mead Elementary School are increasing the consistency of effective instruction for all students, building staff knowledge and skills to support all learners, using data to more quickly identify and provide support for students, and shifting to a proactive culture that supports stronger relationships with students, their families, and our communities.
The recognition program is designed to encourage schools and districts during the construction of their systems and help them celebrate progress toward full implementation.
