Where we ve been

Where we’ve been…

  • With the reauthorization of IDEA and introduction of Response to Intervention (RtI), we saw a natural “fit” with our Instructional Support Team (IST) Process

  • The NYS Education Department Memorandum (April 2008) provided guidance to our established system

  • Research and data provided by Fuchs and Fuchs, RtI Action Network, Interventional Central, and Jim Wright among others have helped us become more educated about the process and stay connected to successful ideas being used in other places.

  • Site visitations and school presentations (3 Rivers Magnet School, Connecticut and Lindenhurst UFSD, Long Island) have also helped provide a foundation on which to build our own program.

  • As a core team, we came to the consensus we were our own best resource and adopted a problem-solving approach to our practice. Working collaboratively has helped us move forward in implementing comprehensive, meaningful, and strategic systemic change.


Who we are

Who we are…

Shawn is part of the Mineola MS IST/RtI as he came to us this year with an IEP and many gaps in his education from moving around and not having stability at home. Our process aids in answering questions about Shawn’s needs as a learner and as an adolescent.

Noah is part of Mineola MMS IST/RtI as he is a bright and capable 6th grader who has struggled with organization, social and emotional trials, and a loss of motivation. Our process is working to help both Noah and his mother better understand his difficulties and create strategies aimed at helping him improve academically.

Danisha is part of Mineola MMS IST/RtI as she was an ESL learner who was failing in the 6th grade. Since her teachers saw her struggling and involved her and her family in the IST process, Danisha has made consistent academic gains and will proudly walk across our stage at graduation this spring.

Drew is Mineola MMS IST/RtI as he has not been meeting his academic potential and has not been advocating for himself. The main goals he is currently working to achieve are focusing in class, increasing metacognition and independence for his learning and increasing his reading comprehension and fluency.

Where we re going

Where we’re going…

  • We are committed to continuous development and progress of the IST in order to serve the needs of our students

    • Continue regular formal and informal meetings of the Core Team in order to analyze current practices and make any necessary modifications

    • Continue professional development of best practice, research based interventions and progress monitoring for entire MMS faculty.

    • Include further opportunities for the faculty to provide insight and input into current and future practices.

    • Maintain current in the research of best IST/RtI practices, specifically those proven to be effective for middle school students.

    • Continue to develop a seamless system in which all faculty and parents engage in the IST/RtI process in order to provide a high level of support for students in need of intervention.


Staying inspired along the way

Staying inspired along the way…

  • “I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and everyone of you for the support that you have given to [my son] these last couple of months. I was very worried that we were headed down the wrong path but with the support he has gotten from his team of teachers he has been able to turn himself around and make positive progress. Looking forward to his continued success.”~ email from Mrs. S. (mother of current IST/RtI student)
