Current List of Tiered Schools

ECE Teacher with students at Goldrick

We believe that there is a basic investment of supports of time, money, expertise and people that all schools need to be successful and to continue to improve, which we term the Universal tier of supports. Strategic supports are added to enhance and accelerate school-specific improvement plans. Intensive supports are provided for the highest needs schools to engage in strategies to implement transformation or redesign of the school to dramatically improve outcomes for all students. We update the tiers each year based on School Performance Framework and other essential information about schools, including both academic and non-academic indicators of a high-quality school.

If you have further questions, please contact us.

Use the table below to look up the tiered support level for your school.  Or the same information can be accessed via this link, which is organized by tiered support level.
