Reading Specialist

The Ironton Elementary School Staff includes a full-time reading specialist to support students and staff with the literacy components of reading, writing, speaking and listening. The school literacy program includes the use of Houghton Mifflin’s core reading program, “‘A Legacy of Literacy,” a strong Guided Reading component, the Columbia Writing Project, and technology programs including Compass Learning and Earobics.

This program is the instructional tool used to establish a comprehensive reading program that includes teacher read-aloud, shared reading, guided reading, and independent reading.  The reading and language arts curriculum also encompasses the writing process.  Together, the state standards, Parkland School District Language Arts Curriculum, and student needs, drive the instructional path for students.

In order to meet students’ needs, Ironton Elementary School participates in both the Title 1 Program (Grades K – 2) and the District Remedial Program (DRP – graces 3 – 6) to support the literacy needs of developing readers. Ultimately, it is our goal to work together with parents to help children become strong, independent readers and writers with a passion for reading.
