Model of Demonstration Schools

Bristol Tennessee City Schools is proud to announce that three of our elementary schools were recently recognized as Model of Demonstration Schools by the University of Tennessee Knoxville's Tennessee Behavior Supports Project (TBSP), which is funded by the Tennessee Department of Education.

Anderson Elementary School has been selected as a 2019-2020 Gold-level RTI2-B Model of Demonstration School, the highest achievement possible! Fairmount Elementary School has been selected as a 2019-2020 Silver-level RTI2-B Model of Demonstration School. Holston View Elementary School has been selected as a 2019-2020 Bronze-level RTI2-B Model of Demonstration School.

There are more than 1,800 schools across the state of Tennessee, and each year a small percentage of schools meet criteria to be selected as an RTI2-B Model of Demonstration School. The three schools have been participants in training and technical assistance provided by TBSP and have undergone the process of implementing a positive and proactive behavioral systems framework for all students.

The RTI2-B framework consists of identifying common behavioral expectations across the school, teaching, re-teaching, reinforcing, and regularly acknowledging students, faculty, and families for exhibiting these expectations. Anderson, Fairmount, and Holston View have successfully applied this framework to improve the climate, culture, and proactive disciplinary practices which directly impacts student engagement and school connectedness.

In meeting this award criteria, the schools demonstrated use of school-wide behavioral data to inform teaching practices and levels of support provided to students based on need. They will serve as a mentors to other schools across East Tennessee. The schools will be recognized at the Partners In Education Conference held in Nashville by the Tennessee Department of Education in January.

Congratulations to all who work hard each day for this achievement!
