Tennessee Tiered Supports Center (TSC) announced on Tuesday, Jan. 18, that Hunter Elementary in Carter County has been selected as an RTI2-B Model of Demonstration School—Gold Level for 2021-2022 for their second year in a row. There are over 1,800 schools across the state of Tennessee and each year a small percentage of schools meet criteria to be selected as an RTI2-B Model of Demonstration School.
Hunter Elementary has been a participant in training and technical assistance and has undergone the process of implementing a positive and proactive behavioral systems framework for all students. The RTI2-B framework consists of identifying common behavioral expectations across campus, teaching, re-teaching, reinforcing, and regularly acknowledging students, faculty, and families for exhibiting these expectations. Hunter Elementary has applied this framework to improve their school climate and culture, student engagement, and school connectedness. In meeting this award criteria, Hunter Elementary demonstrated use of school-wide behavioral data to inform teaching practices and levels of support provided to students based on need. Twice a year, they also reflected on overall fidelity to guide their implementation of the RTI2-B framework.
As an RTI2-B Model of Demonstration School—Gold Level for 2021-2022, Hunter Elementary can now serve as a RTI2-B mentor to other schools across Tennessee.
