RtII
RtII stands for Response to Instruction and Intervention. In brief, RtII is: 

  • A data-­driven model to enable early identification and strategic interventions for students at academic or behavioral risk;
  • A multi-level instructional framework aimed at improving instruction for ALL students; and,
  • A shared and collaborative decision-making process among professional educators.

The Learning Resource Center (LRC)
The Learning Resource Center, found in room 141a and 141b, is a working environment where any student can go during study halls to receive tutoring from either a teacher or a peer, take tests, use laptop computers/printer, and/or be scheduled for algebra intervention. Students can also request assistance or be referred by a parent, teacher, or counselor. 

The HELP Program
The HELP Program stands for High school Extended Learning Possibilities. It is a free, after school program available to all Governor Mifflin High School Students. H.E.L.P. is held in the LRC on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 3:00 to 4:00.

Algebra Intervention
Students enrolled in Algebra 1 who have been identified as having weak basic skills, will be scheduled to attend three classes a cycle with either an Algebra teacher or the RtII Specialist. The purpose is to support these students in their Algebra class by pre-teaching and re-teaching standard related skills presented in the Algebra 1 class, so they not only pass the class but score proficient on the Keystone Exam.
