Memphis Delta Preparatory Charter School

RTI Coordinator

The mission of Memphis Delta Preparatory (MDP) Charter School is to support and grow productive and well-rounded citizens who will succeed in college and beyond. We will work tirelessly to ensure that all of our students are prepared to reach, attend, and graduate from highly selective colleges and universities. A completed course of study at a top-tier college will allow our students to build and support healthy and happy families, empower and improve their Memphis neighborhoods, and enjoy a rich intellectual life. Memphis Delta Prep opened with 250 students in grades K-4 in 2016. At full capacity, MDP will serve 480 students in grades K-5 in the South Memphis community.

The word “Delta” in “Memphis Delta Prep” refers not only to Memphis’s historic gateway location but also to the Greek letter used to denote change. We believe that to change outcomes for students and families, we must change our practice as educators — and fast! Our goal is to accelerate the learning of our students by accelerating the skill growth of our teachers.
To do this, we spend significantly more time than other schools on developing, supporting and coaching our teachers. To make this possible:

  • the school leader spends 80% of his time developing the teachers and the Instructional Coaches;
  • the coach-to-teacher ratio is kept at 10:1 or less;
  • the operations team is responsible for all non-instructional tasks throughout the building;
  • the schedule includes ample time for teacher practice, coaching, planning, and collaboration; and
  • we hire growth-minded teachers who love to practice and to improve their craft from day to day, hour to hour.

We ensure our teachers feel supported by our operations program, celebrated for their excellence, happy to be engaged in the fun work of teaching alongside great colleagues, and excited about the incredible opportunity to learn and improve in each moment.

The RTI Coordinator supports school-based Response to Intervention (RTI) implementation through development of and consultation with general and special educators, development and implementation of student interventions, and coordination of RTI practices, data collection, and data review. The RTI Coordinator will be responsible for providing push-in and pull-out support, training other providers, ensuring we are in compliance with the district/state, as well as overseeing paperwork for Tier III and Tier II students. The ideal candidate will have a passion for and experience with teaching students how to be strong readers/mathematicians and will have experience with guided reading and/or small group instruction. They must follow local and state Response to
Instruction and Intervention (RTI 2 ) Frameworks.

The RTI Coordinator will report to the Director of Academics.
