Linton Public School has worked to close the achievement gap for our students by creating a unified school culture among all staff from grades pre-K through 12.We are unified by a strong mission and vision and desire to meet the needs of all students at their own individual levels of learning. We have been able to achieve student growth by strengthening our interventions for tier 1, tier 2, and tier 3 students. We pride ourselves on not letting any student fall through the cracks by using research-based interventions as we plan for individual student needs. Frequently assessing students' academic levels has allowed us to use data to drive our instruction and has been key to ensuring student growth.

The single most important strategy that has led to Linton Public School's success has been the deliberate approach to providing an adult advocate for each student.Elementary students are provided high-quality instruction and are monitored academically by our Title team and classroom teachers. Our 6-12 students benefit from our half-hour intervention time each day with their homeroom teacher.This process allows students to check on their academic status and plan for success each week. We have seen a growth in student ownership of their learning leading to intrinsically motivated individuals.
