    RtI Overview


    Response to Intervention (RtI) is an early identification process for prevention, advancement and early intervention that focuses on a tiered approach for students with learning and behavior needs. Centering on high quality, best practice core instruction, students who struggle are provided with increasingly intense levels of interventions which positively impacts their learning. The procedural model for RtI includes the following key components:


    • Evidence-based core curriculum, instruction, and tiered interventions/extensions
    • Assessment and progress monitoring systems
    • Data-based decision making

    Learn more about RtI by visiting the webpages listed in the Faculty Links section (click on Faculty Links in the left section).

    There is also a "RtI for Faculty" link under the "For Faculty" tab for more information.
    BrainHoney is the CPHS Learning Management System (LMS). You are able to use this space to build an online space for your courses. You can post calendars, homework, syllabi, notes, videos, etc. to this space and have one-stop shopping for your students. You can embed websites so you will never need to write long web addresses on the board again; just tell your kids to log into BrainHoney. You can put up assignment directions and have the kids post their papers/word to the course--no papers to lose. You can even grade them in the system--no more papers to lug home. If you are giving scantron tests, you can put them into the system; you'll never need to make copies, buy scantrons, hike to the local scan machine (only to find it not working), or hand it all back to kids so they can see their grade. You will even be able to analyze the test data, all without ever leaving your desk!!
    If you need help with any part of setting up or managing a course, contact Jeremy Walker (jmwalker@cps.k12.in.us) to set up an individual tutoring session or just get a quick answer.
    There are some school-wide courses that you might be enrolled in as a student to engage in. If you have already set up a course for yourself, you will see a button on the bottom left of your home screen that says "Switch to Student View". You will need to click on this button in order to see any classes that you are a "student" in. One such example is a discussion group that Russ Marcinek has created for alternative schedules and possible mentoring ideas.
