Reading Support is provided to those students who qualify for support based on PALS (Phonemic Awareness Literacy Screening) and DRA (Developmental Reading Assessment) scores that are obtained throughout the academic year, as well as SOL scores from the previous school year. Support is provided by Mallory Smith, Literacy Specialist, and two trained PALS tutors for students in kindergarten through 5th grade. Students are seen during their language arts time, generally during guided reading so that students can receive two instructional sessions, one from their classroom teacher and supplemental support from either the PALS tutor or the Reading Specialist.
