In an annual report issued by the Wisconsin Response to Intervention (RtI) Center, 108 MPS schools were recognized for achievement in reading, math, and/or behavior. Ranked Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum for the number of years meeting standards, Academy of Accelerated Learning was the only school in Wisconsin to earn Platinum in the three measured areas of reading, math, and behavior. Of the 16 schools across the state to earn Gold in any areas, MPS is proud to count 12 schools at the Gold level of recognition.

The Wisconsin RtI Center assists Wisconsin’s education systems to build capacity, adopt and implement high-quality practices, make informed decisions, and ensure sustainability of efforts and increased success for all students. The center’s goal is to develop and sustain an equitable multi-level system of supports to ensure success for all students. At the classroom level, RtI practices identify students who need additional support and then respond to students with individualized plans to help them succeed.
