We are committed to our Continuous Improvement Plan, which focuses on instructional practices. Staff will be building our reading intervention plan and data discussions to make decisions to best meet the needs of all students everyday.  Staff will also work together to implement the Response to Intervention (RTI) model.  The structure of RTI will provide Sunnyslope students with added academic support.
