An update on the Payson Unified School District’s new data-driven program to identify elementary school students who are falling behind is on the governing board’s agenda Tuesday.
The program, called Response to Intervention, seeks to recognize and help struggling students in elementary school so that they succeed in later grades. The district funded three new positions with stimulus funding to help facilitate the program.
The board meeting will begin at 5:30 p.m. in the district office board room. Traditionally, meetings fall on Mondays, however Columbus Day pushed the meeting to Tuesday.
The board will discuss creating another new position Tuesday: an assistant superintendent. Also, the principals of Payson Center for Success, Rim Country Middle School and Payson Elementary School are scheduled to tell the board how they are working to meet district goals. District officials will also provide a financial update of its construction projects in a required annual report.
