Simsbury Reading Intervention Program (SRIP)

The Simsbury Reading Intervention Program (SRIP) is designed to serve both regular and special education students (K-6) who qualify for Tier II reading interventions. Reading teachers address students’ specific weaknesses, as identified via school-wide screenings, in the five core areas of literacy (Phonemic Awareness, Phonics, Comprehension Strategies, Fluency, and Vocabulary). The intervention is provided during 30-minute sessions to small groups of students, in addition to the Tier I instruction that students receive in the classroom. Students who do not respond to the targeted instruction at Tier II will be referred to the building-based Student Intervention Team (SIT).
