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.
 
 

For the second year in a row, West Tennessee School for the Deaf (WTSD) was recognized as a Model of Demonstration School, Bronze Level, for Response to Instruction and Intervention-Behavior (RTI2-B). Thanks to the tireless work of WTSD's RTI2-B team, WTSD students continue to work toward and get rewarded for fulfilling the expectations of being responsible, respectful, and cooperative with the goal of supporting a positive social and behavioral climate at WTSD.
