RISE / READ Act Parent Resources



At Eldorado, we believe in empowering students through the Science of Reading. Our effective reading intervention model, known as Reading Intervention for Students to Excel (RISE), is specially designed for students in grades 1-5 who are reading below grade level. RISE is a comprehensive literacy intervention program that covers phonics, vocabulary, comprehension and  writing. RISE has proven to be a powerful and successful intervention.

At Eldorado, our literacy team and classroom teachers utilize assessments to identify students who require intervention and are reading at similar text levels. These students are then placed in small groups of 5-6 and receive intensive instruction using Orton Gillingham materials, vocabulary/morphology, and reading comprehension.

Through the RISE program, we aim to help our students effortlessly apply these acquired skills to real-world reading and writing scenarios. We strive to empower our students to become confident readers and proficient writers, enabling them to excel academically and beyond.

Special Education records which have been collected by Douglas County School District related to the identification, evaluation, educational placement, or the provision of special education in the district, must be maintained under state and federal laws for the period of five (5) years after special education services have ended for the student. Special education services end when the student is no longer eligible for services, graduates, or completes his/her educational program at age 21, or moves from the district. This notification is to inform parents/guardians and former students of Douglas County School District's intent to destroy the special education records of students who exited special education services as of June 30, 2016. These records will be destroyed in accordance with state law unless the parent/guardian or eligible (adult) student notifies the school district otherwise. After five years, the records are no longer useful to the district, but may be useful to the parent/guardian or former student in applying for social security benefits, rehabilitation services, college entrance, etc. The parent/guardian or eligible (adult) student may request a copy of the records by requesting the records by email to [email protected].
