Response to Intervention (RTI) Multi-Tiered Support System (MTSS)
Georgia Cyber Academy (GCA) supports the academic achievement of all students, particularly those most at-risk through the Response to Intervention (RTI) / Multi-Tiered Support System (MTSS).
Achieving Academic Growth with AIM
Students receiving Academic Interventions Monitoring (AIM) support meet with their AIM teacher weekly for remediation. AIM teachers develop rigorous, yet realistic and measurable goals for each student while providing targeted instruction and collecting weekly data points to monitor student growth and progress. AIM strategies, including the use of i-Ready, a diagnostic tool designed to give a full picture of student performance needs with engaging and rigorous resources, have proven success for filling instructional gaps.
For the 2021-2022 school year, students showed significant i-Ready diagnostic growth from the Beginning of Year (BOY) to the End of Year (EOY). The percentage of students scoring 2+ levels below in reading and math decreased by 27% from BOY to EOY. The percentage of students scoring on and above level increased by 14% in reading and 13% in math.
Dedicated AIM teachers have allowed our most academically at-risk population of students to fill instructional gaps and increase growth in both reading and math.
