How to Use Your Reading Specialists

Last year we took a new approach to the use of reading specialists’ time during the school day. We are no longer operating under the previous push-in model, as this would only allow us to provide support to a handful of teachers in the building. We thought this might be a great opportunity to review how the reading department can best support you.
Both teachers teach three classes of Read 180 and use the remainder of the day to: support teachers with the planning and implementation of reading strategies in their classrooms, attend IEP and team meetings, read assessments to struggling readers, assess new students, research interventions and strategies to share with the staff, organize and share student data, support the reading expectation in Discovery, and provide other support to the building.
Below is a table that describes how you may access the support we provide. This is not an exhaustive list, so if there is else you would like support with, please let us know.
