Response to Intervention at the Middle and High School Levels

China Middle School, China

Heather Wilson is the school RTI coordinator for China Middle School.  They are in the second year of implementing RTI so it is still a work in progress, but would be happy to share what they are doing.

Greenbush School Department, Greenbush

We have a solid RtI system in place. We are always open to a visit to see how our process works.

Leonard Middle School, Old Town

I would highly recommend the BARR model for both middle and high school level.  We're piloting in RSU 34.  Bucksport and Noble have already implemented. 

Jordan-Small Middle School and Raymond Elementary, Raymond

We are on our third year of revising our RtI model looking for that "magic bullet".  The principal would be happy to share what we have tried and our currently doing either by phone or through a visit. RtI for grades 6 - 8 is a different "animal" than what works K-5 that is for sure!

Lake Region Middle School, Naples

We implemented an Advisory/RtI Block this year at Lake Region Middle School.  Every day, students meet with their Advisory group and then transition to a designated space on his or her respective team, depending on the supports needed.  The RtI block ranges from 35 -45 minutes in length depending on the day.  We are currently managing this with a google spreadsheet, but in the next couple weeks we will be implementing EduSched, an RtI scheduling software developed by a teacher in Westbrook. It is supposed to be pretty amazing.   

We also have a strong RtI committee at the middle school. We are always open to having visitors check out what we are doing at LRMS if it may be helpful in any way.

Saco Middle School, Saco

SMS has a strong RtI model.  Contact the principal for details.

Scarborough Schools, Scarborough

Our Student Assistance Team provides support to students who are struggling academically or behaviorally. The team is comprised of teachers, counselors and administrators and we coordinated with nurses, school resource officer and other student services providers in the school.

2011 Principal Study Survey
The Maine Principal Study has documented since 1997 how Maine principals experience their work and feel about their effectiveness. The 2011 Maine Principal Study survey was distributed electronically, and several items were dropped because they had not yielded particularly useful information during previous administrations. This latest survey revealed some interesting trends. To view the 2011 survey, click here.
