Multi Tiered System of Support for Students

Rincon High School's Multi Tiered System of Support (MTSS) is designed to support students academically and behaviorally. It is a progressive intervention system that starts in the classroom with the teacher. A teacher may suggest that a student attend conference periods or tutoring time or the teacher may speak privately with the student. The next level of intervention involves parents. The school counselor or teacher may suggest a parent/teacher conference or the school counselor or MTSS facilitator may ask for assistance from district student support specialists. The third level of intervention may consist of utilizing resources outside of our school district.

Rincon High School has a reputation for being a warm, welcoming school with a diverse student population. We want to foster a kind school community. To this end Rincon utilizes positive behavioral intervention and support. This is a reward system to encourage students to make positive choices and contribute to our welcoming school climate. We have Ranger Reward cards which are scratcher cards that offer a variety of incentives for students. 

Rincon's MTSS facilitator is Michelle Callahan-DuMont. Contact Michelle Callahan-DuMont by email.
