Tier II / Supplemental Instruction
Tier 2 refers to evidence-based targeted supplemental skill-building intervention. This instruction is matched with the specific skill deficits of students who fail to meet Tier 1 benchmarks in core subjects. Tier 2 instruction is systematic, explicit, and aligned with Tier 1 instruction. Instructional interventions are typically delivered in small groups of students with similar skill building needs. Instruction is scaffolded and based on the needs of individual students as determined by assessment data.
