Intervention

  • What is Intervention?

     

    Core Instruction 

    • Instruction provided to all students 

    • instructional practices are data-driven: adjusted or retaught based on student need evidenced by a previous assessment

    • Grade levels will use research-based best practices including Balanced Literacy components and structures

    • Grade levels will use a variety of instruction that is differentiated where students are able to learn the whole group, small group and/or collaboratively

    • student progress within core instruction is evidenced by consistently collected data

    • Grade level teams meet weekly to discuss student progress and/or problem-solve for learning gaps

    Supplemental Instruction

    • Instruction developed for groups or individuals in need of additional support

    • Supplemental instruction is matched to student needs identified from research-based assessment and instruction

    • Students are grouped by similar needs and provided strategic, evidence-based instruction aligned to Core

    • Student progress within Supplemental instruction is evidenced by consistently collected data

    • Grade level teams discuss and recommend student interventions in professional learning teams (PLT).

    • Interventions are systematic and monitored through KID TALK, a function of grade level PLT, to analyze Digging Deeper Assessments to determine the student’s most foundational area of need

    • Interventions provided and progress monitored weekly using mClass or other tools.

    • PLT may involve academic coaches to assist in addressing student needs

    • After discussion and analyzing student performance data, teams will determine whether the student should return to core instruction, remain in supplemental intervention, or move to a more intensive intervention. 

     Intensive Instruction:

    • Intensive instruction is developed for students who have not responded to Core or Supplemental instruction.

    • Student is referred to intensive instruction by the team case manager, if after adequate time, the student has not shown progress within supplemental instruction

    • Students will receive intensive instruction with maximum intensity, frequency, and duration 

    • Student progress within the intensive intervention is evidenced by consistently collected data 

    • Systematic and explicit interventions provided and monitored through KID TALK, a function of grade level PLT, to analyze Digging Deeper Assessments to determine the student’s most foundational area of need

    • Interventions provided and progress monitored weekly using mClass or other tools.

    • If the student does not show adequate progress within the intensive instruction, the team will discuss and/or recommend a formal evaluation.

Lisa Wohlschlaeger:  I have had the honor of teaching for over 10 years.  My path to Penny Road Elementary has been a winding and adventurous one.  Because of my passion for child development, I started my career in early childhood education where I operated an in-home daycare/preschool for nine years while my three children were young, and dreamed of someday returning to college to become a teacher.  My dream was realized when I received a Masters Degree in education and  began teaching for Durham Public Schools.  There, I taught early childhood education and parenting courses to high school students.  From there, I became to certified to teach elementary and joined Wake County Public Schools, where I have taught for over 7 years.  

I had the pleasure of being a Penny Road Parent and now have the added joy of becoming part of this incredible team who all share the same passion for children that led me here.  

My husband, Mark and I moved with our three children to North Carolina from Kansas City, KS .   We have three children.  Brooklyn, Tressa, and August..."Augie".  We also have a little dog, named Remmy.  I enjoy spending afternoons at coffee shops, being a mom, spending time with my family in Kansas, writing, and "DIY" projects.

Trent Crumpler:

I was born and raised in Goldsboro, North Carolina where my family still lives. I attended the University of North Carolina Wilmington (Go Seahawks!) studying Elementary Education with a concentration in mathematics. In addition to my education degree, I also received a minor in leadership which has given me the skills to be a leader in and outside of the classroom. I have been an educator in Wake County for 8 years, working with fourth and third grade. I have a passion for school improvement and making sure that everyone succeeds in reaching the shared school vision, ensuring that all students have the resources they need to achieve.Outside of school, I enjoy going to the movies, shopping for new clothes, binge watching shows on Hulu, and spending time with my friends for game night. I have two cats, Jace and Koa, who are a handful, but I love them regardless. People would describe me as energetic and outgoing. I love meeting new people and making connections with others.

As the Instructional Facilitator and Literacy Coach at Penny Road Elementary, I make sure that teachers have all the resources needed to meet student achievement. I facilitate Penny Road staff development through new initiatives from Wake County and for school improvement. I also help teachers when it comes to reading instruction, bringing resources and skills that they can use in their classroom with their students. I also serve as the Testing Coordinator for Penny Road which means I have to ensure the training and security of all county and state tests that students are required to take throughout the year. I wear many hats at Penny Road, all of which I enjoy!
