    What Is CIM?
    The Comprehensive Intervention Model (CIM) is a “systemic model for reversing the reading failures of struggling readers through layered interventions, including differentiated classroom instruction and supplemental interventions in small groups or one-to-one.”



    Goal of CIM:  The goal for K-3 is to increase the overall literacy achievement by the end of third grade and to reduce the number of children identified with learning disabilities within 1.5% or less of the general population. 


     The system goal of  CIM is to change the achievement profile of a school by providing:  research-based interventions that increase the literacy levels of low-performing children, and  training and professional development for teachers that increase their knowledge and expertise in teaching the lowest children.




    Types of Interventions Available:

    Reading Recovery-Reading Recovery is a 1st Grade early intervention Reading program designed to accelerate the progress of our lowest reading students. It is a nationally acclaimed, research based program in which students work on-on-one with a trained Reading Recovery teacher for 30 minutes each day for 12-20 weeks. Our goal is to have the students reading at or above grade level at the end of their program.




    Interactive Writing- Interactive Writing is an intervention used in small groups with kindergarteners and early first graders. It a cooperative intervention in which the teacher and students jointly compose texts and share in the experience of reading books aloud.




    Guided Reading Plus- The Guided Reading Plus intervention is used with grades K-5 with the emphasis being on the early grades. This intervention focuses on the reading of leveled texts and the students working with the teachers in small groups at their instructional level to accelerate processing. Students read and then write about the texts to build for reciprocity and strengthen reading and writing vocabularies.
