West Branch Local Schools
Reading Improving and Monitoring Plan
The West Branch Local School District’s Reading Improvement and Monitoring Plan describes the areas in which your child needs additional support, how we plan to assist your child during the school day, as well as how we will monitor your child’s progress. Also, we have provided opportunities for you to be involved in instructional services for your child.
According to Ohio law, if your child does not achieve the appropriate level of reading competency by the end of third grade (beginning in 2013 – 2014 school year), he/she will not advance to the fourth grade. Please be advised that we will be using multiple measures to monitor your child’s progress.
The West Branch Local Schools’ Response to Intervention (RtI) process provides intervention and educational support to all students at increasing levels of intensity based on their individual needs. RtI has three tiers that build upon each other.
Tier I interventions includes high quality curriculum, instruction, and behavior supports within the general education classroom.
Tier II-A are low intensity researched based interventions conducted within the general education setting.
Tier II-B interventions are higher in intensity. These interventions are directed by a highly qualified Title One Tutors. These interventions often occur within a small group setting.
Tier III interventions are most intensive and often require greater supports from specifically trained intervention specialists.
An educational team will review your child’s progress every six to eight weeks at a Data Day to determine if a different level of intervention is necessary.
