    Dear Students and Families,                          21-22 TOY photo    

    Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year! As one of your campus Reading Specialists, my goal is to provide reading support for students in need for grades K-3 through small group intervention at your student's appointed MTSS small group work time. I'm also the teacher for Read 180, which is our reading support program for students in grades 4-6.  I work with Read 180 students during their MTSS time slot M-F and they have 15 minutes of small group time with me as well as 15 minutes of software work time on the Read 180 Universal program. On Fridays, those students also have 15 minutes of independent reading with a book that is interesting to them and at their appropriate reading level.

    Additionally, I am also the Campus Intervention Coordinator. I watch our schoolwide student data closely and work with our Guiding Coalition Team that consists of our administration and coaches, as well as our campus psychologist, to ensure that all of our students are receiving the appropriate interventions and support that they may need to fill their learning gaps and be on track.

    If you have any questions, please contact me via my email: diane.allen@dvusd.org.  All students that work with me always get an informational letter to take home to their parents/guardians that informs you of the support that your child is receiving and a parent's signature is required to show that you are aware of the extra reading instruction that your child is getting through these intervention groups and classes.

    Looking forward to a great new school year! 

    Diane Allen
