Response to Intervention

In order to better address the needs of our students, the East Hanover Township Schools utilize a Response to Intervention (RTI) model.  RTI is a framework designed to provide educational, health and behavioral support to struggling students. It is most commonly used to address learning challenges in reading and mathematics but is also applicable to social and emotional/behavioral needs. Universal screening assessments are administered to all students and intervention plans are developed for any student not meeting grade-level expectations. Interventions may take place within the classroom or outside of the classroom depending on the level and nature of support required. Our teachers, interventionists, and related professionals provide a variety of data-based/evidence-informed interventions to ensure each student’s success. Progress is regularly monitored to guide decision-making about instruction throughout the school year.

Title I Program Description

In East Hanover Township School District we utilize our Title I funds to implement extended day programs, summer programs, and academic interventions at each of the districts' three schools.

Each school implements a targeted assistance program that services only identified low performing students. For schools operating a targeted assistance Title I program, services may benefit only those students who meet the established criteria defined by the school. The East Hanover Township School District utilizes multiple measures, which include but are not limited to, end-of-year assessment scores, past academic performance, and teacher recommendation. Students will be monitored for academic improvement and may exit the program on the basis of multiple measures that include, but are not limited to, a proficient score on an end-of-year assessment, academic performance and/or teacher recommendation.

The goal of our Title I program is to ensure that all identified children obtain a high- quality education and achieve, at a minimum, proficiency on the challenging New Jersey Student Learning Standards as measured by district benchmarks and state assessments.
