We will list those students who are identified as intensive on the BOY DIBELS test and track their progress to the end-of-year and be able to identify the percentage of students who showed quantifiable progress as a result of the formal interventions being supported by services provided by Land Trust monies.

In addition to classroom Tier II instruction, 100% of students who are identified as intensive by the DIBELS tests will receive additional reading interventions from the Reading Intervention Team, ELL aide or the Special Education team.

d. List the specific steps of the ACTION PLAN to reach this goal. Be sure to include a description of how each expenditure is part of the action plan.

DIBELS assessment will be conducted three times per year for students in Grades 1-3.

100% of students in Grades 1-3 who have been identified as intensive according to the DIBELS test will receive formal reading interventions.

In addition to the school’s Reading Coach, at least two Reading aides will continue to be employed to provide small-group reading interventions to at-risk readers.

DIBELS assessment will be conducted at regular intervals for students in Grades 1-3.

Reading intervention services will be expanded to serve at-risk readers identified in K and Grades 4-6 as possible.

Reading intervention services will be expanded to serve Spanish-Immersion students who need literacy support in Spanish.
