What is MN ReadingCorp?
A program that places AmeriCorps members in schools to implement a researched-based early literacy effort to help struggling readers. The Reading Corp strategies are designed for both preschool-aged students through third grade students.
The intervention specialist teacher is part of an innovative program called Response to Intervention (RtI). RtI is to assist students with being proficient in achieving grade level expectations. As part of RtI, a reading assessment will be administered to all students in the fall, winter, and spring. If the assessment indicates a child is eligible for additional supports, the child will begin receiving additional Reading support from his/her classroom teacher, intervention specialist, or Reading Corp member under direct supervision of the classroom teacher.
An intervention specialist will provide scientific, research- based Reading interventions to the students in addition to the core curriculum received in their general education classroom. The student’s progress will be monitored and data based decisions will be made regarding the interventions used. Student progress will be shared with classroom teachers and families.

Who can receive help?
Schools with the highest percentage of students who receive free and reduced lunch qualify. Once a school is identified, anyone in the school can receive Title One services. All Washburn students in Kindergarten through 5th grade are eligible for services. Our school decides who will be serviced based on data and assessment scores.
