City School Board

NEWPORT—Newport Grammar School RTI Coordinator Lenora Douglas spoke at length to the Newport City School Board during their June meeting on Monday. Douglas reported to the board regarding the goings on of the Response to Intervention and Instruction program at the school. Douglas showed a short video in which the RTI instructors introduced themselves and gave a short comment about their work.

Douglas went on to explain the structure of RTI at NGS, where students are separated into tiers based on need. All students receive some sort of RTI Instruction, though the broadest tier, Tier I, is where about 80-85% of students are assigned. Tier II provides small-group instruction to 10-15% of students, while Tier III provides instruction to very small groups of about three students at a time. Students’ needs are assessed three times each year through the aimswebPlus Universal Screener.
