Literacy Success is an intervention program offered to students who would benefit from additional direct instruction in reading and writing. Certified teachers reinforce and supplement the regular classroom instruction in a small group setting inside the classroom. Selection for this program is determined by teacher recommendation, classroom assessments, and/or standardized testing.
By third grade, students are making the transition from "learning to read" to "reading to learn". Reading is the foundation on which all subsequent learning lies. If a child experiences difficulty with reading, he or she will have difficulty in other subject areas. Literacy Success focuses on the development of individual strategies to help each child succeed. The areas of concentration are fluency, comprehension, and phonics, if necessary.
Parental involvement is an important component of our program. Literacy Success is designed to be an interactive resource for the student, the classroom teacher, and parents.
