Sometimes going the extra mile gets us to the finish line
At ITA we go the extra mile to provide scholars with additional support beyond the classroom. Our goal with support is to always strengthen comprehension and application of the knowledge and education we provide daily.
The purpose of our full time reading specialist is to assist students with specific academic needs in reading and support teachers in and outside of the classroom. Students work with the reading specialist one on one, and in small groups. Students are given focused instruction on:
- Phonemic awareness
Students are assessed throughout the year on these skills. For our developing readers are progressed monitored every three weeks to inform instruction and celebrate growth.
