Tier 2 Interventions

  • Tier 2: Targeted Interventions

    If it is determined that the student has had poor response to Tier 1 interventions and the instructional setting is not preventing satisfactory academic achievement then the student would receiveTier 2 interventions.  Tier 2 interventions are individually tailored interventions that are layered in addition to the Tier 1 interventions, and should not replace any instruction.  They should be systemic, direct directed instruction to assist with any deficits for individual students. Once Tier 2 interventions have been provided with consistency and quality for 6-8 weeks and it is determined that the student has had a positive response to the interventions, then no other interventions or supports are required at this time. 


    Some of the Tier 2 Interventions at City Honors School are:

    Check-In/Check-Out: CICO is a structured program that involves scheduled "check-ins" with an adult for positive feedback in the morning and afternoon.  Students carry a daily report card throughout the day to document their efforts in meeting behavioral and academic expectations. Goals are set and tracked to share progress with the students.

    Check and Connect: Check and Connect, like CICO, is a structured program that involves scheduled "check-ins" with an adult to create a positive relationship and rapport.  Students meet with their Check and Connect mentor daily and based upon the needs of the student.

    Social/Academic Instructional Groups (SAIG): SAIG Groups support several students with similar needs by providing an opportunity to meet as a group with the goal of building skills regarding the needs area.  Students participating in a SAIG group learn replacement behaviors to assist them with problem-solving, pro-social behaviors, and academic behaviors and skills.

    Brief Behavior Intervention Plan (BIP): A Behavior Intervention Plan is a set of strategies and interventions that are implemented to assist in modifying or changing a behavior to a more desirable behavior.  The BIP is developed by the School Psychologist.
