Tenth Street Elementary School believes that all students across the learning spectrum have unique challenges that must be met. As professionals, we must diagnose, plan, and progress monitor our efforts with children to create a sensible and efficient way to meet the exact needs of every child, R.T.I. (Response to Instruction). Formative assessments are used to pinpoint each child’s most pressing academic needs. Differentiated instruction, small groups, and learning stations are among the tools that engage each student with his/her needed curricular objectives. Re-assessment is crucial in providing us with evidence and confidence that our children’s academic needs are being met.
