Oak View Elementary School focuses on a rigorous and relevant curriculum while working to build strong relationships with students and families.

Curriculum

Oak View Elementary follows the Williamson County Schools’ Scope and Sequence.  The scope and sequence is designed so that the content taught is in a sequential order that will build on prior knowledge while sustaining new opportunities for learning.  The scope and sequence includes Tennessee’s academic standards and Williamson County standards.  To access the grade-level standards, visit the Williamson County Schools Scope and Sequence site (opens in new window).

RTI

Williamson County Schools has implemented the Response to Instruction and Intervention (RTI2) model to better support all learners. The RTI2 model is designed to prevent failure and make all students successful learners.

The object of RTI2 is to intervene early and assist the student before the deficits begin to impact learning. The model can be used at any grade level and in the areas of reading, math, and written expression. The RTI2 model provides extra help for students at increasing levels of intensity based on how much progress the students are making in relation to a set goal.

In the RTI2 process, the progress the students make at each stage of intervention is closely monitored. Results of the progress monitoring are used to make decisions about what further instruction the students will need in order to meet grade level standards.

RTI2 provides a more objective way to look at student performance.  Teachers and parents are able to use data from universal screening tests, state assessments, and progress monitoring reports to better understand how the student is doing compared to grade level expectations.  Providing early intervention through the RTIprocess is a proactive measure that aims to limit the amount of academic failure a student would experience.
