  • Willowville Elementary and in our West Clermont Local School District, the Response to Intervention process is followed when students are struggling at school.  The goal of the Response to Intervention is to identify an action plan that will improve the student’s academic, behavioral, or social skills.  Based on data collected in the classroom, teachers may provide automatic interventions and document these on a Tier 2 intervention form.  If a more intensive, individualized plan is needed, the teacher will schedule a Tier 3 meeting with parents and other support personnel, as needed.  A collaborative plan will be developed at the meeting with parent input.  Parental involvement is a very important part of this process.

Willowville Elementary has supportive volunteers who are welcomed into the school setting and complete the cohesiveness of community support which help our staff and students achieve.  We value their time, effort, and
