New Jersey Tiered System of Supports - Early Reading Grant
Given New Jersey's need to better identify and provide early reading intervention to students with disabilities and/or significant reading difficulties, NJDOE has prioritized the implementation of a multi-tiered system of reading supports. The purpose of this project is to build capacity to implement the New Jersey Tiered System of Support for Early Reading (NJTSS-ER) via strategic personnel development.
The project will result in (a) increased state-, district-, and school- level leadership and high-quality professional development in NJTSS-ER; (b) increased fidelity of NJTSS-ER implementation; and (c) improved reading skills for students with disabilities and/or those requiring intervention. State Coaches from the NJDOE in partnership with Professors from Rutgers University are providing training in NJTSS-ER components to our academic coaches who are in turn training and coaching for our school teams.
Brick was one of only 10 districts in the state to participate in Cohort 1 of this grant. The evaluation will investigate (a) the extent to which leadership and PD are provided at state, district, and school levels; (b) the fidelity of NJTSS-ER implementation in schools; (c) early reading performance for students; and (d) the allocation of funds to ongoing technical assistance.
