Reading Programs

Reading Recovery (First Grade)
Reading Recovery is a short-term intervention for low-achieving first graders. In Reading Recovery, individual students receive a half-hour lesson each school day for 12 to 20 weeks with a specially trained Reading Recovery teacher. As soon as students are able to read within the average range of their grade level as determined by national norms, and are able to demonstrate that they can continue to achieve independently, their lessons are discontinued. Then, new students begin individual instruction.

Classroom teachers refer students for screening to be performed by a Reading Teacher. Parents are notified if students qualify for this program. Permission to participate in this program will be received from parents before a student is enrolled in the program. As students exit the program, their continued progress is monitored by Reading Teachers.

Reading Program (First - Eighth Grade)
The Reading Program is a reading intervention where small groups of students receive lessons between 3 – 5 days a week with a specially trained Reading Teacher. As soon as students are able to read within the average range of their grade level, as determined by national norms, and are able to demonstrate that they can continue to achieve independently, their lessons are discontinued. Then, new students begin individual instruction.
