LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE THROUGH AND BE PART OF THE SOLUTION

RESPONSE TO INTERVENTION (RTI): GUIDED READING

We are still building our intervention programs for students who may need additional support. Part of the RTI process is for teachers to provide Tier 2 support through specific interventions such as Guided Reading and/or Guided Math.


This week Ms. Evans and I will review Guided Reading binders in primary classrooms. Teachers in PK-2nd grade should have their Guided Reading binders readily available for administrator review. This review is for us to determine how we need to move forward with Tier 3 support for students. This will give us an idea of how many students are in need of additional support and to what degree.


Thank you for your commitment in making certain our students are on track.
