Goal
Reading aides will continue to be employed to provide small-group reading interventions to at-risk readers in grades K-2 using a push in model. DIBELS assessment will be conducted at regular intervals for grades 1-3 students. A reading aide will be employed provide reading interventions to at-risk readers in grade 3-6. In addition to classroom Tier II instruction, all students who are identified as intensive by the DIBELS tests will receive additional reading interventions from the Reading Intervention Team.
