11. RTI Success

Gary Henry, writing for the Paris-Beacon News in 2010, reports on an RTI program in Hume, Illinois, at the Newman Grade School. Hume is a town with less than 400 residents. The RTI program is mandated. It is for struggling students who are falling behind their peers but should not go immediately to special education. The focus will be on reading.

The Shiloh Board of Education received a progress report on what the Newman Grade School curriculum committee was doing to implement RTI. “The Shiloh School District is organized by attendance centers and all of the district’s prekindergarten through second grade students are taught at Newman.” Progress evaluation is supported by online testing.

Final plans will be made over the summer.
