CURRICULUM UPDATESMay 10, 2011

State Board of Education Rule 6A-6.054

As of April 21, 2011, K-12 student reading intervention requirements have changed.

Districts must establish criteria beyond FCAT for placing students into different levels of reading intervention classes to meet individual instructional needs of students. Districts must determine if students have an instructional need in decoding and text reading efficiency through the use of assessments and must identify benchmark criteria for placement of students requiring additional instructional time in reading intervention.What Has ChangedFluency has been removed from the placement guidelines and replaced with decoding and text efficiency abilities.This provides flexibility in scheduling additional time for reading intervention students in need of instruction in decoding and text reading efficiency.Language was revised to allow flexibility to districts regarding progress monitoring requirements of Level 1 and 2 students.

Placement of Level 1 and Level 2 Students Without Decoding and Text Efficiency Issues FCAT Level 1 Students must receive 1 period of intensive reading.FCAT Level 2 students must be placed in an intensive reading course or a content area reading intervention.Teacher must be NGCAR-PD, CAR-PD, reading endorsed, or reading certified.

FCAT Level 1 and 2 Students that are reading 2 or more years below grade level must have 2 periods of intensive reading.The classes do not need to be by the same teacher.They do not need to be back to back.

Placement of Level 1 and Level 2 Students Who Are Reading 2 years or More Below Grade Level

Students who score at FCAT Level 1 or 2 and have intervention needs in areas of decoding and/or text efficiency must have extended time.This may occur before or after school daily with teacher support OR may be in an additional period of intensive reading.

Placement of Level 1 and Level 2 Students With Decoding and Text Efficiency Issues Placement of 11th and 12th Grade Students Who Are FCAT Level 1Students in 11th and 12th grade who are FCAT Level 1 will receive reading intervention.One period of intensive reading intervention is required even if the student has a concordant score necessary for graduation.Extended time will be determined by the additional assessment results and flow chart.

Placement of 11th and 12th Grade Students Who Are FCAT Level 2Students in grades 11 and 12 who have met the graduation requirement with a Level 2 score on FCAT Reading may be served through one of the following options.Reading coursesContent area courses without a specific professional development requirement (any content area course)Before or after school

The content area course does not need to be with a teacher that is reading certified, endorsed, CAR-PD or NGCAR-PD trained.8Assessment(s) to Determine PlacementAll SchoolsFCAT FY10 Scores (until FY11 scores are available)All Schools using FAIR FAIRMiddle and High Schools not using FAIRPencil/Paper Maze (located in Learning Village) with SRIElementary Schools not using FAIRFountas and Pinnell with SRI

FASTT MathFor Title 1 Elementary SchoolsIs an intervention program

Provides for 10 minutes daily

Differentiates based on student gaps

Develops fluency with basic arithmetic facts

Allows schools to manage one database for FASTT Math, SRI, and Reading Counts

FASTT Math is a research-validated intervention program to help struggling students develop fluency with basic math facts in addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.

Math fact fluency allows students to free up critical mental resources to focus on higher-order math instead of using those mental resources to construct the answer to a math fact.

Training sessions for teachers in June will be posted in course registration later in the month.

FASTT Math automatically differentiates instruction and practice based on each students individual fluency gaps in customized 10 minute daily sessions. For use in grades 3,4, and 5 primarily.

Memo will go out in the near future notifying the 60 schools scheduled to receive FASTT Math.

They will receive the Enterprise Edition of FASTT Math which fully integrates with Scholastic Achievement Manager (SAM), allowing the school to manage one database for FASTT Math, SRI and Reading Counts. In addition, students will now be automatically imported and enrolled in FASTT Math.

Training sessions for teachers in June will be posted in course registration later in the month.

When installations occur over the summer, schools that already have FASTT Math will be upgraded to Enterprise Edition.
