Literacy for All Students; no exceptions, no excuses!

Categories: Covington City | 2017

In partnership with our TTAC representatives from Virginia Tech we here at Jeter Watson Intermediate School have initiated a literacy plan to try and bring all our studetns up to grade level reading by the time they finish the 7th grade.  We are making changes to our Tier 1 reading instruction and have added Tier 2 and Tier 3 reading interventions such as Fusion Reading for our 6th and 7th graders.  I-Ready seats for grades 4,6, and 7.  We have implemeted Orton Gillingham for some of our 5th grade students along with the RAZ KIDS program for our lowest readers in the 5th grade.
