Congratulations Model of Demonstration Schools
Anderson and Fairmount awarded Gold Level Model of Demonstration
Posted on 11/19/2020

The Tennessee Behavior Supports Project (TBSP) at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville (funded by the Tennessee Department of Education) is proud to announce that Anderson Elementary School and Fairmount Elementary School have been selected as 2020-2021 gold level RTI2-B Model of Demonstration Schools. There are more than 1,800 schools across the state of Tennessee and each year a small percentage of schools meet criteria to be selected as an RTI2-B Model of Demonstration School.

This is the second year Anderson has been a gold level school and Fairmount's first year. Fairmount was awarded the silver level last year.

Both schools have been participants in training and technical assistance provided by TBSP and have undergone the process of implementing a positive and proactive behavioral systems framework for all students. The RTI2-B framework consists of: identifying common behavioral expectations across campus, teaching, re-teaching, reinforcing, and regularly acknowledging students, faculty, and families for exhibiting these expectations. Anderson and Fairmount have applied this framework to improve the climate, culture, and proactive disciplinary practices which directly impacts student engagement and school connectedness. In meeting this award criteria both schools demonstrated use of school-wide behavioral data to inform teaching practices and levels of support provided to students based on need. Twice a year, they also reflected on overall fidelity to guide their implementation of the RTI2-B framework.

It is TBSP’s goal that no school in Tennessee should have to travel more than 45 minutes to see an exemplary school implementing RTI2-B. As a gold level RTI2-B Model of Demonstration School, Anderson and Fairmount serve as mentors to other schools across East Tennessee. These awards will be presented during the Partners In Education Conference hosted by the Department of Education.
