Supporting Learning

There are many ways the District supports students in their classroom achievement and their development. Click on the menu on the left to learn more about how each of these areas contributes to student learning. 

Systems of Student Support: All students learn at different rates and have varied experiences. A method that works well for one student might not for another. MVWSD teachers work throughout the school day to continually check for understanding of material and offer enrichment or remediation to students when appropriate. This type of differentiated instruction is important, effective and part of our Strategic Plan 2021.

We help students achieve through multi-tiered systems of support. This is an approach of using an integrated comprehensive framework to focus on core instruction, differentiated learning, student-centered learning, individualized student needs, and the alignment of systems necessary for all students’ academic, behavioral, and social success.

Here are ways that MVWSD ensures that all students achieve by providing challenge or extra support.

Response to Instruction (RTI) is an approach for all students whether they need additional support or enrichment. It identifies and supports students with high-quality, multi-tiered instruction, ongoing student monitoring and assessment, and collaboration. Link to more.

Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol (SIOP) is an instructional model that allows educators to design and deliver lessons that address the academic and linguistic needs of English learners while enhancing the overall learning environment for all students. SIOP-based teaching benefits all students, not just those who are learning English as an additional language. Link to more.

Student Study Team (SST) is a school-based, collaborative problem-solving group whose purpose is to support students in the areas of instruction and/or behavior. The SST can provide support by contributing both personnel and school resources in response to identified student needs. The SST can include the parent, principal, or other administrator, psychologist, counselor or classroom teacher.
