Soleado has been a participant in a RTI (Response to Intervention) reading program K-5 this school year. In fact, our results have been the highest district wide. All staff members are involved in the process and we will continue next year with the same program in place. The following information explains some of what the RTI program at Soleado supports, as well as, what it looks like for the students at Soleado.
What is Response to Intervention and how is it used in PVPUSD?
RtI is a way of allocating instructional resources in schools to maximize the academic success of all students. It is best understood as a 4-tiered model.

During the screening process, all students’ grades 1-5 read passages that calculated their Lexile reader measure. A Lexile measure is a valuable piece of information about either an individual's reading ability or the difficulty of a text, like a book or magazine article.
A student gets his or her Lexile reader measure from a reading test or program. For example, if a student receives an 880L on her end-of-grade reading test, she is an 880 Lexile reader. Higher Lexile measures represent a higher level of reading ability. A Lexile reader measure can range from below 200L for emergent readers to above 1600L for advanced readers. Readers who score below 0L receive a BR for Beginning Reader
The idea behind The Lexile Framework for Reading is simple: if we know how well a student can read and how hard a specific book is to comprehend, we can predict how well that student will likely understand the book.

Using your child’s Lexile measure, you can be assured that your child understands what they are reading, which supports the joy of reading in their lives.
