Tier I: Foundational and Self-Directed Supports
Foundational and Tier I supports are designed for schools that have relatively strong
instruction models, but need focused supports in a few specific areas.
Because of the wide range of needs, the supports for Foundational and Tier I
that are listed here are just a snapshot of what currently exist in terms of supports. Based on a school’s identified area of improvement, they should connect first with local supports at their district and then consult with the relevant OSPI department, their ESD, or other potential partnerships. OSPI will remain connected to this learning, so promising practices can be shared as progress is made. These supports are available to all schools including those served in other Tiers of the support model.
