Intensive Reading Program

  • Summer Intensive Reading Program 2022 (IRP)

    female student Program Description:

    The SISS Summer Intensive Reading Program will be an intervention for students with IEPs utilizing Lexia Core 5 (1st-5th) or Lexia Power Up (6th-8th) computer program. The students will be participating in whole group instruction, independent work, Lexia computer-based program practice, and targeted instruction with the teacher. The teacher will monitor students’ progress during the duration of the program and adjust instruction based on need. Students will be grouped into classes based on similar reading needs, levels, and/or age. The student’s IEP case manager will identify potential students for this program and refer them based on data* and identified areas to target during summer. Not all referrals will be admitted into the program due to space, criteria, or other contributing factors. Any student not admitted will be encouraged to register in a summer academy course.

    *Data can include but is not limited to NWEA scores, Reading Benchmarks (F&P, SRI, Lexile), Academic Data from a Re-Evaluation, or other ELA measures
