The start of the school year is a big deal at Overall Creek, and students and staff love to join in the excitement. Overall Creek, an elementary school in the Murfreesboro City School District, is in their third year of implementation of RTI2-B. They have bought into the framework and do a wonderful job of engaging students, staff, and families. To kick off the school year, the Tier I team hosts a school-wide assembly for all 1st-6th graders, and a separate assembly for Kindergarten (since they start later than the rest of the students). All students receive settings expectations lessons during Special Area rotation the first two weeks of the school year. In addition, the school-wide expectations are reviewed daily on morning announcements, and a settings spotlight of the day is shared until all areas in the building are covered. Students are shown teacher-made videos featuring examples and non-examples of the expectations in different settings. And that’s just for the students! A refresher training is provided for the staff, while a more in-depth training is provided after school for new teachers/staff members. A fact sheet is then sent out to parents that outlines the RTI2-B plan at Overall Creek, along with information about student incentives. Overall Creek has done a wonderful job supporting students, families, and staff to start the school year off on a positive foot. Keep up the amazing work!
