The overall MTSS program at PVHS focuses on academic and social emotional target data that identifies those students most at risk based on their academic score level and behavioral patterns of attendance and discipline. The
MTSS data collection occurs for all students, of which at PVHS, over 90% are from low-income families, and as an alternative high school program, over 90% of Edge students enter behind grade level in graduation credits based on
their cohort. Renaissance Freckle Math and Star Reading is used as a primary intervention applied to all Tier 2 and Tier 3 students through a secondary intervention course in math and English language arts with additional one on one support with contracted teachers.
MTSS is an approved evidence based intervention. Panorama connected with school behavior and School Connect SEL curriculum is provided through a direct
instruction course to students most directly impacted by the pandemic as priority students facing Tier 2 and Tier 3 risk levels in attendance and discipline or known out of school instability (unaccompanied youth, students in foster
care and known mental health as identified in individual counseling, 504s and IEP review).
School Counselor - The onsite school counselor will meet with students to support their social emotional health and identify and support interventions for barriers to academic success. The counselors works directly with identified sub groups of low-income families, students with 504/IEP accommodations for counseling support services, major racial and ethnic groups, students in foster care and students with chronic absenteeism.
