Student Improvement Team (SIT)
The Student Improvement Team process is a systematic approach to addressing academic or behavioral needs of a student. Any needs of a student K-8th grade who is struggling either academically or behaviorally will be brought to the Student Improvement Team. The team of teachers, parents of the child and child (if age-appropriate) will meet to devise and implement strategies to help the student find success.
Title 1 Instructors
To meet the needs of students who learn differently, we have several Title 1 Instructors. Title 1 Instructors work cooperatively with classroom teachers and provide small-group instruction, in addition to the instruction of the classroom teacher. The instructors gather and interpret assessment data and utilize instructional strategies and research-based intervention specific to the student.
Support for English Language Learners (ELLs)
Students at RCS come from a variety of backgrounds. For our students that are English Language Learners or students whose native language is not English, our teachers provide differentiation to meet the needs of students. In addition to classroom teachers, students receive support from Title 1 Instructors, Resource Teacher, and English as a Second Language (ESL) Teacher.
Our resource teacher is a specialized educator that gives added support to students struggling with an academic subject or skill. The Resource Teacher works closely with the classroom teacher and other support staff to serve students, monitor progression, and determine appropriate modifications.
Our enrichment coordinator provides extended learning opportunities to students who are surpassing expectations in the classroom. The coordinator both challenges the student and promotes greater concept exploration through meaningful discovery. The enrichment coordinator is also responsible for coordination, implementation, and structuring of various after school programs.
