All students can learn to read. CNE Elementary is focused on providing reading instruction and intervention for students whether they are strong or struggling readers. Over the last two years, all staff have participated in an intensive training on the most effective instructional practices in reading, and we are seeing huge growth in all of our students!
That being said, we know that some students still need just a little bit of extra support in order to grow as readers. The staff at the Elementary uses data to determine which students require this extra intervention, and then we match those students with one of our Reading Specialists. At this time, about 5% of our students receive this extra support.
In order to make sure that we are getting the results we want, we continually monitor student reading data. Now, most of the students (84%) who are receiving this intervention are meeting or exceeding growth expectations! We are very proud of the work we are doing and are very happy to see students across the grade levels grow as readers!
