Response Through Intervention (RTI)
Within our school community there are supports that teachers can access as they assess and plan for the individual needs of each student. To help with this process, the Village and Hill Schools have review teams. These teams are made up of staff members with varied expertise. Periodically, regular education teachers meet with this team to review student progress and to receive feedback and input from the team. This input may include some suggestions for additional strategies or interventions that might be helpful.
All staff members view each student as having an individualized program. Teachers work to accommodate individual: learning styles, academic needs, social/emotional needs and physical needs. During this process should a concern arise regarding a child’s program, parents/guardians will be contacted. Otherwise, the child’s program will be reviewed with the parents/guardians at conference time.
The special education team provides support to at-risk and Special Education students within the general education setting. Intensive intervention is given through systematic instructional programs such as Lindamood Phoneme Sequencing Program, Wilson Phonetic Program, Project Read, Earobics and the Reading Milestones Series in a variety of school settings. Direct instruction and intervention services are provided by a full-time Speech and Language therapist and full-time occupational therapist individually and small group in a variety of school settings.
The school counselor, works with parents and staff to ensure the students at Pembroke Hill and Village Schools have a successful year. During this age, children are not only developing academically, but socially and emotionally as well. They are learning communication skills, friendship and problem solving skills, and character values.

outside agencies that are involved with the students. The school
counselor, does not to provide long term therapy or mental health
counseling, but assists in recommending appropriate community
services. Our Guidance Counselor is Cristle Gordon.

develop the social, emotional and behavioral skills needed to be
