White River Valley Supervisory Union ⧫ White River Valley School


White River Valley Unified School District offers supplemental Intervention Reading and Math Programs for targeted individuals or small groups. We are a Title One school, which means that we are provided federal funds to offer academic support to students. During the 2021- 2022 school year, programming is provided through small group or in-class support for students in Literacy: Reading, Writing, Phonics, Spelling, and in Math.

The intervention staff and classroom teachers meet regularly to discuss and coordinate students' individual academic needs. A child qualifies for intervention support based on assessment data and teacher referral. Students are then provided services using research-based programs. Families will be contacted if their child is found to be eligible for services.

READING INTERVENTION: In reading, we provide supplementary small group intervention. Our main intervention is the Leveled Literacy Intervention (LLI) program. LLI is a Fountas and Pinnell intervention program that provides instruction in phonics, fluency, vocabulary, reading comprehension, and writing. It features engaging texts, it closely monitors student progress, and it aligns well with the Fountas and Pinnell instruction students receive from their classroom teachers. Some reading intervention students receive targeted phonics instruction through Orton-Gillingham approaches or the Wilson program; other reading intervention students receive targeted support through the Direct Instruction (DI) program. We are also using Heggerty for instruction in phonemic awareness.

MATH INTERVENTION: The goal of math intervention is to supplement students' math skills and help close gaps in students' math concepts. In both Bethel and South Royalton, interventionists may use enVision mathematics as well as other resources, for small group sessions as well as provide math support in the classrooms.
