Reading Recovery



All learners, regardless of circumstances, have the right to a quality education that assures they become independent readers and writers early in their school careers.

 

The mission of Douglas County School District Reading RecoveryⓇ intervention is to produce sustainable learning by focusing instruction and learning opportunities for individual students to reach their full potential.

 

The vision of Reading Recovery in Douglas County School District is to open doors early to a literate future for children who initially struggle in learning to read and write.

 

Our goal is to reduce the number of first grade students who have difficulty in reading and writing, creating a successful pathway for future learning. By intervening early, Reading Recovery helps close the achievement gap between the lowest-achieving students and their peers before the gap becomes too large to bridge.  Specially trained teachers work individually with students in daily 30-minute lessons lasting 12 to 20 weeks. After a full series of lessons, about 80% in Douglas County School District, of these formerly lowest students reach grade-level standard.
