Reading Resources for Staff:

Reading Intervention

  • Reading Intervention Flowchart
  • Tier 1 Programs
    • Learning Ally - Check to see if your student already has an Audiobook Solution account at Learning Ally in this spreadsheet. Please complete this request survey for MVA students who do not already have a Learning Ally account and who you believe are eligible to receive the services per the Eligibility Guideline.
  • Reading Lab (Tier 2) is designed to support grades 1-6 students who have been identified as needing small group targeted reading intervention.
    • Students are identified as needing Tier 2 reading intervention based on receiving Level 1 in ELA SBAC OR Level 1 in Star Reading. Reading Lab is best for students who can be successful in a small group virtual setting and not already in another school-provided intervention program for reading/decoding. You can personalize this Reading Email Template and send to families explaining the Reading Lab program, expectations, and possible class schedule.
      • How to refer student to Reading Lab?
        1. To refer your grade 1-6 student to Tier 2 Reading Lab, please complete the SIPPS Placement Screener with student and upload a pdf of the scoresheet to the SIPPS Test Upload Form (coming July). Make sure you use the appropriate SIPPS test for the student's grade.
      • Expectations
        • 1 semester of systematic reading intervention using SIPPS (Fun with Phonics or Decoding Detectives) OR Voyager Passport curricula (Reading Rangers)
        • Online classes led by Reading Intervention Teachers meet twice a week for 45 minutes each session
        • For the reading intervention program to be effective:
          • Students are expected to attend every session. No more than 2 unexcused absences.
          • Cameras should be on during virtual class. Students should use earbuds/headphones with a mic or be in a separate quiet space away from distractions.
