    The role of the reading interventionist is: 

    -To work with students identified in I&RS specifically in decoding, fluency, phonics, comprehension, or other identified areas.

    -Facilitate interventions in small groups 2-4 times per week with students at similar reading/ability levels.

    -Teach how to read not WHAT to read, along with research-based practices for students to push back into their general education reading/content area classrooms. 

    -Assists CST and or Homeroom teachers with identifying students that may need a higher level of intervention.
