West Tennessee School for the Deaf (WTSD) is home to a vibrant community of students, educators, and specialists in communication, language, and learning.
 
Our students make a promise each morning to be RESPONSIBLE, RESPECTFUL, and COOPERATIVE by meeting positive behavioral expectations in all areas of the school. As a result, our school has a climate in which appropriate behavior is the norm and students are rewarded as these behaviors are observed.
 
 
 

West Tennessee School for the Deaf (WTSD) is honored to have been selected as a Model of Demonstration School, Bronze Level, for Response to Instruction and Intervention-Behavior (RTI2-B). This is recognition for the RTI2-B team's development and implementation of WTSD's positive behavior support program. With efforts led by Veronica MacDonald, the team includes Melissa Spence (chairperson), Kristi Lindsey, Natalie Carmen, Ann Shearon, Kris Wolfe, Kristy Murdock, and Mitch Sims. The team devoted many hours to the development and support of the social and behavioral climate of WTSD.  Through a system that incorporates tickets and prizes for rewarding the three expectations of being RESPONSIBLE, RESPECTFUL AND COOPERATIVE; the program fosters a welcoming, positive school environment that is enjoyable for the community and that will support the specific academic, behavioral, and social needs of all students.
