Supplemental Intervention Reading Programs (SIRP): These programs will provide instruction that primarily focuses on one single essential component of reading (i.e. oral language, phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary or comprehension) intended to extend beyond the initial instruction of the Comprehensive Core Reading Program (CCRP).

The School may use the following approved research-based programs:

 

Elements of Reading, Vocabulary (grades K-5)

Guided Leveled Readers (grades K-5)

Quick Reads (grades 1-5)

Rigby Newcomers Kits (grades 3-5 for ELL-Levels I, II, III)

Soar to Success (grades 3-5)

Word Wisdom by Zaner-Bloser (grades 3-8)

Voyager Passport Reading Journeys

Comprehensive Intervention Reading Programs (CIRP): These programs are intended for students who are reading one or more years below grade level and who are struggling with a broad range of reading skills. The instruction provided through these programs should accelerate growth in reading with the goal of returning students to grade level proficiency. This intervention will provide more frequent assessments of student progress and more systematic review to

ensure proper pacing of instruction and mastery of all instructional components. The School may use the following programs in providing targeted differentiated intervention support to meet the specific needs of struggling readers:

 

Wilson Foundations (ESE)

Triumphs (grades K-2)

Language! The Comprehensive Literacy Curriculum (grades 6-8)

Read 180 (grades 6-8)

Technology Resources: FCAT Explorer (3-5), FOCUS (3-5), Voyager (K-5)

Intensive Reading

Students in grades 6-8 scoring level 1 or 2 on the FCAT who have intervention needs in the areas of decoding and fluency will receive an extended block of reading intervention. This will occur through a double-block of intensive reading (IR-plus) or by blocking together a class of “Intensive Reading” with another subject area class. This block of time will be taught by the same teacher. This teacher should be highly qualified to teach reading or working toward that status

(pursuing Reading Endorsement or Reading Certification).

 

The Intensive Reading Plus (IR –plus) course will include on a daily basis:

 

Whole-group explicit instruction

Small-group differentiated instruction to meet the needs of students reading below-onabove grade level.

Independent reading practice monitored by the teacher

Infusion of reading and language arts reporting categories and benchmarks (NGSSS)

A focused infusion of word attack skills (i.e. decoding and structural as applied to multisyllabic words)

A focus on embedded fluency exercises to foster automaticity, prosody, intonation and rate.

Middle students who have demonstrated a proficient fluency level and scored level 1 or 2 on the reading portion of the FCAT will be placed in a single-block of intensive reading (IR). This singleblock of time will be taught by a highly-qualified teacher in the area of reading or working toward that status (pursuing Reading Endorsement or Reading Certification).
