Critical Features: K-12 Literacy Plan

core principles of hsd k 12 literacy framework
CORE Principles of HSD K-12 Literacy Framework
  • We can effectively teach all children.
  • Administer universal benchmark assessments three times a year.
  • Deliver instruction from a core program for all.
  • Use research-based, scientifically validated curriculum, interventions, and instruction.
  • Use a multi-tier model of service delivery.
  • Intervene early.
  • Use data to make instructional decisions.
  • Monitor student progress to inform instruction.
  • Increase time and intensity of instruction when students fall behind.

Recommendation 1Screen all students for potential reading problems at the beginning of the year and again in the middle of the year. Regularly monitor the progress of students who are at elevated risk for developing reading disabilities.

INTENSIVE

Students are significantly below benchmark targets as measured by multiple assessments. Ninety minutes of intensive instruction is needed to help the student catch up in a replacement program. An additional thirty to sixty minutes focused on the area of weakness may be needed. Assessments occur every 1-2 weeks.

STRATEGIC

Students are not meeting benchmark targets as measured by multiple assessments. Ninety minutes of instruction (direct, re/pre teaching and adjustments in pacing and complexity is needed for the student to catch up. Assessments must occur every 3-4 weeks.

BENCHMARK

Students are generally meeting benchmark targets as measured by multiple assessments. There may be an occasional need for re-teaching . Some sort of differentiated instruction is woven into lesson planning. Generally, no interventions are need. Assessments should occur every 6- 8 weeks.

Students consistently exceed benchmark targets and handle advanced materials. Interventions need to provide challenge, extension and enrichment. Assessments should occur every 6-8 weeks.

collaboration
Collaboration
  • Teams meet monthly & review students data and use decision rules to make instructional changes
  • Collaboration/EBISS data teams are on going in nature and continue to meet, discuss, and determine next steps for students who continue to fall below aimlines.
recommendation 5
Recommendation 5

Provide intensive instruction on a daily basis that promotes the development of the various components of reading proficiency to students who show minimal progress after reasonable time in Tier 2 small group instruction (Tier 3)
