Programs for students that fall under the "Student Services" umbrella include the Talented and Gifted Program, School Counseling, Math Intervention services, services to English language learners, and special education and related services. Files in the PDF format and other links are available on this web page.
The Pewaukee Public School District offers a continuum of services for children who qualify for special education and related services, ages three to 21. Each child who meets criteria for one or more of the 11 impairments described in both state and federal law and who demonstrates a need for special education and related services will receive a free and appropriate education to meet his or her needs as described in his or her individualized education plan. This plan is developed by the IEP team which includes parents and professionals working together to meet the unique needs of each child.
RtI Parent Information
The Pewaukee School District believes in providing the highest quality of education for our students. This notification is to provide you with information about a new three-tiered instructional approach we are using to meet this goal referred to as Response to Intervention (RTI) which is now part of federal educational law.
For RTI, all students will participate in the core curriculum with three levels (tiers) of interventions for students who demonstrate at-risk skills in general academics or behavior. Each tier provides additional support beyond the core curriculum. All students will be tested three times a year to measure their progress to determine if they are performing at grade-level. Behavioral expectations will also be monitored on a regular basis throughout the year.
Tier One – Teachers will use different strategies within the core curriculum to address all student educational needs.
Tier Two – Based on progress data, students who are unsuccessful in Tier One will be provided supplemental research-based interventions matched to their needs. The RTI team, an instructional support team, will track the student’s progress, and parents will receive ongoing progress data.
Tier Three – Students who continue to struggle in Tier Two will receive more intensive interventions at this level. Parents will receive ongoing progress data. After Tier Three implementation, students who continue to display limited progress may then be considered for further evaluation and services.
Our school is excited to take part in this process to improve educational outcomes for all students. As always, do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher or Anthony Strancke, Student Services Director, if you have questions or concerns.
