Title I funding has
provided Hopkins Elementary the opportunity to hire an Intervention Specialist

role in the instruction of literacy at Hopkins. She collaborates with the leadership
team to improve student achievement in reading. Our specialist provides
professional development to Hopkins staff members, and this time is dedicated
to enhancing instruction strategies in small reading groups, working to make
student groups more targeted and focused on the individual needs of students.
Our specialist also works directly with students in targeted intervention
