Literacy at Washington

At Washington Elementary, we strive to ensure that all students become proficient readers and writers.  Students who are in need of intervention in reading or writing will be provided additional opportunities to work with either their classroom teacher or a member of our intervention staff in small groups.
Throughout the school year, our teachers use assessment data to monitor progress and drive instructional goals.  We recognize that literacy acquisition is personal; all students grow and change on their own timelines.  We are prepared to provide intervention for students who may need extra support in the process of learning to read, write and develop mathematical competencies.
Should your child be a student who qualifies for additional support, we will contact you directly.  Please visit our Intervention page often for updates about Title 1 parent events, presentations and resources.
