Frank E. Woodruff has been awarded the 2016 California Gold Ribbon Award and Title I Academic Achievement Award from the California Department of Education.  Awards were based on our Response to Intervention program that focuses on teaching each student at his or her literacy levels.  General education teachers, Intervention teacher, Special Education teachers, and Instructional Aides all work together to provide targeted instruction for all students as established by multiple assessment measures.  Struggling learners are provided specific, small group instruction for decoding, fluency, vocabulary, or comprehension needs.  In contrast, accelerated learners are provided enrichment opportunities to extend their literacy development.  During RtI time, all students are leveled by groups to provide quality instruction that meets their individual needs.  By collaborating as a team of educators that take responsibility for ALL Woodruff students, we can work together to increase literacy for all learners.                                             Beverly Swanson
