9.18.2019 - Fishers Jr. High LGI Room

9.19.2019 - Hamilton Southeastern Intermediate / Jr. High LGI Room

9.24.2019 - Riverside Jr. High LGI Room

These sessions will allow you to hear and ask questions about the district’s view on school safety and what is currently in place to keep our students safe.  We also are always available to discuss any safety concerns with you.

What to do if you suspect a disability/Child Find:

  • For children at least two and a half years of age, but not yet age-eligible for kindergarten, you should contact the Early Childhood Assessment Team at Brooks School Elementary School, 915-4250.
  • For students who are eligible for kindergarten through age 21, you should contact your child’s teacher, school counselor or building administrator to discuss your concerns and explore the steps to be taken.

Response-to-Instruction (RtI)
RtI is a general education initiative designed to provide high quality instruction and interventions matched to student needs, and using learning rate over time and level of performance to make important educational decisions. The RtI model is based on a three-tiered model of service delivery with a focus on early intervention and prevention of academic and behavioral concerns. Data collected during this process provides valuable information regarding students’ educational progress and response to interventions. Students who do not demonstrate a response to well-implemented, scientifically-based interventions at the Tier 3 level would be referred for an educational evaluation to determine eligibility for special education. RtI is a component of HSE’s Child Find Process.
