The team at West Georgia RESA works to support teachers and administrators in developing and implementing sound instructional practices to improve student learning. For several years, the West Georgia RESA team has worked diligently across our seven systems to increase student achievement.

Our philosophy is simple: Support and sustain school leadership to help create a positive school culture, develop teacher confidence in delivering Tier 1 instruction, and help schools develop a protocol to identify and provide intervention to students who have gaps in their learning.

The data we have collected over the years reinforces our belief that intervention begins at Tier 1, where all students should have access to scaffolding in the way of reviewing and previewing important skills, encouraging critical thinking and applying knowledge across multiple tasks.

The GRASP tools are designed to provide teachers with the data they need to plan rigorous instruction for all students. For students who require intervention in additional to regular classroom instruction, GRASP provides tools designed to track progress on skills from Kindergarten to high school. The West Georgia RESA Team is committed to support the implementation of GRASP in our schools that are dedicated to making data-based instructional decisions for all students.

Over the years, we have made many improvements to the GRASP assessment tools and database at the request of our systems. This will be our best year yet!
