Tier 1 - School-Wide Instruction - Learning

additional support (80-90%).
Tier 2 - Target Interventions - Additional
supports given to some students to help
increase learning in a specific part of the
curriculum (5-10%).
Tier 3 - Intensive Interventions - Direct
services tailored to a few students based on
their unique learning needs (1-5%).
Special Education - For students who have
gone through the 3 tiers and have been
identified as having some form of a
disability. Specialized services through an
IEP plan can be provided.
Staff or parent identify an area of concern
and work together through phone
