Bronze School

The Tennessee Behavior Supports Project (TBSP) at Vanderbilt University (funded by the
Tennessee Department of Education) is proud to announce that Riverside Elementary School has been selected as a 2019-2020 bronze level RTI2-B Model of Demonstration School. There are over 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.

Riverside Elementary School has been a participant in training and technical assistance
provided by TBSP and has 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 campus, teaching, re-teaching, reinforcing, and
regularly acknowledging students, faculty, and families for exhibiting these expectations.
Riverside Elementary School has 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 Riverside Elementary School demonstrated use of school-wide behavioral data to inform teaching practices and levels of support provided to students based on need. Twice a year, they also reflected on overall fidelity to guide their implementation of the RTI2-B framework.

It is TBSP’s goal that no school in Tennessee should have to travel more than 45 minutes to see an exemplary school implementing RTI2-B. As a bronze level RTI2-B Model of Demonstration School, Riverside Elementary School can now serve as a mentor to other schools across Middle Tennessee. This award will be presented at the Partners In Education Conference held in Nashville by the Department of Education.



Thank you for your interest in our school! Please let us know if you have any questions!
