Wisconsin RtI Center Recognized Schools


Recognizing Progress Toward Full Implementation

Across the state, schools implementing equitable multi-level systems of supports are congratulated for their efforts through our RECOGNIZED SCHOOLS PROGRAM.

Our RECOGNIZED SCHOOLS PROGRAM was created to encourage schools in their work of expanding, refining, and eventually sustaining full implementation of equitable multi-level systems of supports. The program affirms the dedication and hard work that schools invest on their journeys. Click here for an overview brochure and here for an overview video

Recognition Levels

In Wisconsin, a fully-implemented system is equitable, and provides increasing levels of student supports for all content areas. The following table provides a brief summary of the center's criteria for recognition levels:

  • Bronze: At full implementation/fidelity in one content area at the universal level for at least one year 
  • Silver: At full implementation/fidelity in one content area at the universal level for at least two years and selected level for at least one year 
  • Gold: At full implementation/fidelity in two content areas at the universal and selected levels for at least two years 
  • Platinum: At full implementation/fidelity in all three content areas, at all three levels, and for at least three years

A brief overview can be found on our Recognized Schools Program At-A-Glance chart. A more detailed document outlining criteria for each of the levels can be found on our Recognized Schools Program chart.
