May Monthly Spotlight: Robert R. Church Elementary!

We love to see RTI²-B in the news! Robert R. Church Elementary of Shelby County Schools has been making a splash with the grand opening of their Trailblazer Incentive Store. The school received a generous donation from a local fraternity chapter, which they used to revitalize their RTI²-B store. Robert R. Church’s work is a phenomenal example of strategic community engagement. They have leveraged community support to enhance their RTI²-B framework, and their collaboration with local media allows the larger community to see the positive work that the school is doing. Further, the highlights break down RTI²-B in community-friendly language, allowing for better understanding and increased opportunities for buy-in. In the features, school leaders explained how RTI²-B has been a mindset shift and has led to a moral boost at their school. We also loved to see the school’s RTI²-B Model of Demonstration School banner in the background of the video.

The hope is to change mindsets. If we are able to change mindsets, we believe our students will be able to succeed inside the classroom and outside the classroom.
