Our goal is to help all students reach their full potential. Sometimes students need more support, and our reading teachers and staff are prepared to help. We have many different interventions available to assist a variety of student needs.
Reading intervention supports and services at Loveland City Schools are designed to give students an additional 30-45 minutes of reading instruction. Using the MTSS Model (Multi-Tiered Systems of Support): Research-based programs, strategies and daily supplemental small group instruction focusing on phonics skills, blending sounds to make words, quick recognition of word wall words, vocabulary development, reading accuracy, fluency in text reading, and comprehension skills to further each student’s reading growth. Children in Tier 2 or Tier 3 reading support are given extra time as indicated on the action plans with the reading intervention teacher.
Reading teachers may also support classroom teachers by providing extra tools as needed with Tier 1 building-wide support.
Identification: We use AIMSweb Plus data and Diagnostic Reading Assessment (DRA 2) to identify and monitor students showing a need for additional support in the area of literacy. Action plans are sent home throughout the year to specifically address the level of support needed.
