SCOTT CITY, MO (KFVS) -

Some schools in the Heartland are being proactive to help students who have slipped when it comes to math test scores.

Scott City Public Schools Superintendent Brian Lee said they've started a new program in 2015 for elementary students called RTI, or Response to Intervention.

Since the test changed last year to meet the Missouri Learning Standards, it's been difficult to measure how well the students are doing compared to the year before.

"Normally you would look at those tests and see the areas you improved on, see the areas you went down in and you would focus in on those areas. Because the test was brand new, we can't look back over three, four, five years of history to gauge how our scores are moving," Lee said.

Overall the district feels the students and staff are doing well.

They're tackling areas of concern and constantly working to improve.
