Students who do not demonstrate proficiency with grade-level standards receive intervention support.
Evidence-based interventions include:
|Literacy Intervention||Grade Levels Served|
|Orton Gillingham (OG): Provides explicit, systematic and multi-sensory methodologies that can be implemented as a Tier III reading intervention for students who require intensive remediation in phonological awareness, phonics, decoding and encoding.||Elementary, Middle and High School|
|Really Great Reading (RGR): Provides explicit, systematic and cumulative Tier III reading interventions for students who require intensive remediation in the areas of phonological awareness, phonics, decoding and encoding. There are three RGR interventions available for students: Countdown, Blast and HD Word.||Elementary, Middle|
|iReady Reading: Provides an explicit and systematic Tier III intervention for students who require intensive remediation in comprehension.||Elementary|
|System 44: Addresses basic literacy skills||Middle and High School|
|Read 180: Addresses basic reading skills that will build a comprehensive understanding and reading for meaning.||Middle and High School|
|iLit: Additional literacy supports for ESOL students in Grade 4, 5, middle and high school||Elementary, Middle and High|
|Math Intervention||Grade Levels Served|
|iReady Math: Provides an explicit and systematic Tier III intervention for students who require intensive remediation in math.||Elementary|
|Math 180: Addresses basic math skills to prepare for Algebra 1 readiness||Middle and High School|
The intervention data collected for assessment and data analytics will be used to inform each student’s evaluation plan at the end of each intervention. The evaluation plan will be provided to teachers and parents. Diagnostic data with daily progress reports will be included in the evaluation plan. In addition, MCPS will use the intervention data, along with multiple measures and anecdotal data, to evaluate the impact and efficiency of the approved intervention programs to support students. Intervention attendance and usage will be used to measure success.
MCPS students may access additional academic support through Saturday School, provided by the George B. Thomas Learning Academy
