RISE Program


    We are excited to be implementing a brand-new reading intervention program at Hartwood Elementary School that is known as RISE and RISE UP.  We are piloting the program with help from our reading consultant, Ellen Lewis, and the author Jan Richardson. This is our second year of implementation and the results are amazing!


    RISE is our reading intervention program for Tier 2 students in 1st - 3rd grades.  We will choose children who are about 6 months below grade level for this intensive reading program that meets for 6-8 weeks at a time.  This intervention program follows Jan Richardson's reading program, but is tailored to fill in the gaps quickly for our students.  




    RISE UP is the Tier 2 intervention program used at Hartwood for students in grades 4 and 5.  This program focuses on comprehension strategies.  Students will be chosen for this 8-10 week intervention program who are about 6 months below grade level. 


    Students who are more than a year below grade level  are not eligible for this intervention.
