Reading Coordinators

Category: Reading Program

The School will employ Reading Coordinators to support focused professional development for its teachers. Reading Coordinators will provide quarterly analysis of progress-monitoring data in order to specify areas for further professional development.

 

Reading Coordinators will lead the Literacy Leadership Team and coordinate professional development related to the reading plan. Professional development needs will be determined on the basis of student data and will target specific instructional methods, classroom practices, and intervention techniques that will directly improve student achievement. Reading Coordinators will also provide job-embedded professional development for teachers through coaching and modeling of instruction. 

Literacy Leadership Team

 

A Literacy Leadership Team will be established as a collaborative effort to oversee implementation of The School’s comprehensive reading program and monitor the use of instructional materials. The Principal, Assistant Principal, Reading Coordinator, Media Specialist, Testing Chairperson and Department Chairpersons may be members of the Literacy Leadership Team. The Reading Coordinator will be responsible for scheduling meetings and addressing agenda concerns. Meetings will be held to review implementation of the reading plan, address professional development needs based on student data, and address curriculum needs.

Advanced, honors, or gifted coursework may be offered based on student need.
