The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction and the Wisconsin RtI Center have recognized Forest Glen Elementary School, Howard Elementary School, Meadowbrook Elementary School, and Lineville Intermediate School for successfully building a school-wide equitable, multi-level system of behavior supports aimed at closing achievement gaps. National research shows that full implementation of an equitable system leads to improved student outcomes.
By establishing equitable, multi-level systems of supports, Wisconsin schools 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.
This recognition program encourages schools and districts during the construction of their systems and helps them celebrate progress toward full implementation. As schools continue the work, they will map out how to sustain their systems and continue to build increasing levels of student supports in additional subject areas until the system is fully in place.
