Learner Support Services

Red Lake Public Schools is committed to meeting the individual learning needs of students by offering a variety of learning & support services for all students.

The school district is working to implement a Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) framework for both social-emotional learning and academics. The MTSS framework serves to ensure equitable services and supports to students based on their level of need.

The MTSS includes strong Tier 1 / Universal instruction and support combined with Tier 2 / Targeted Small Group supports and Tier 3 / Individualized supports for students who need additional support. Special services including special education and related services can be accessed by students in either the classroom, a tutoring/resource center, or a specialized class. The district provides Individualized Educational Plans for students who meet eligibility standards in Minnesota and Section 504 Plans for students who meet Federal eligibility standards.

The Learner Support Services page includes information about the district's MTSS framework as well as special education and related services for both staff and families.
