Targeted Services

The Orono Schools provides additional intervention support for learners struggling with literacy after school hours. Targeted services are provided at Schumann Elementary, Orono Intermediate School and Orono Middle School. Guidelines are provided through MDE, with building administrators and reading specialists using data across multiple measures for identification. Ten to fifteen percent of children in the buildings access these after-school services. Parent permission and involvement is coordinated through each building office. Services are offered at no cost to families twice per week for 75 minutes each session. Materials and instructional practices are aligned with intervention experiences occurring within the school day.
