Our District mission statement challenges us to educate students so that they achieve personal excellence and become contributing citizens of the world community. Fulfilling this mission begins with guaranteeing that our curriculum meets or exceeds the expectations of State adopted standards: teachers using evidence based practices in instruction and assessment and intervening when students struggle or excel, and teachers developing and supporting the social and emotional needs of our students. Through a Response to Intervention (RtI) framework or more broadly a Multi-Level System of Support (MLSS), we will strive to realize the District mission and vision for all students. The ECSD Multi-Level System of Support Student Servicing Handbook documents and provides guidance to implement a Multi-Level System of Support (MLSS) in the Evansville Community School District.

Historically, school reform efforts emphasized collaboration, high-quality instruction, and balanced assessment. RtI provides a systematic approach that integrates these three essential elements within a multi-level system of support to maximize student achievement.

A multi-level system of support is the practice of systematically providing differing levels of intensity of supports (interventions/additional challenges, collaborative structures, monitoring of student progress) based upon student responsiveness to instruction and intervention. Within an RtI system, schools:

  • Use data to identify students at risk for poor learning outcomes or in need of increased challenge
  • Monitor student progress
  • Intervene based on student need
  • Adjust the intensity and nature of interventions or challenges depending on a student’s responsiveness

Factors, such as effective leadership, meaningful family and community involvement and data-based decision-making enhance a multi-level system of support (WI RtI Center).
