For the purposes of this guide, reading interventions include both supplemental programs provided in addition to regular classroom English language arts instruction as part of a multi-tiered system of support (MTSS) and reading courses or electives that are provided to students in middle or high school. In general, elementary schools tend to provide supplemental reading interventions, and middle and high schools tend to provide additional or elective reading courses, although policies do vary by state, district, and school. Group size typically varies, with smaller groups in grades 4 and 5 than in elective reading courses in middle and high schools.
