The Green Forest School District utilizes the evidenced-based Take Flight dyslexia intervention program in small group intervention to address the deficit areas of students identified as exhibiting the characteristics of dyslexia.   
The following chart details annual data regarding students attending Green Forest School District who are identified as exhibiting the characteristics of dyslexia and those who are receiving dyslexia intervention services from a trained dyslexia interventionist:

Note: These are composite totals for the year. If students leave the district, these numbers may not exactly match final numbers on state reports. 

The Arkansas Department of Education has created a Dyslexia Resource Guide to provide guidance for districts, schools, and teachers as they seek to effectively meet Arkansas code provisions regarding Dyslexia screening and intervention. In addition to Dyslexia specifics, it also outlines the relationship of Dyslexia Intervention to RTI, and how this combination meets IDEA (the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act).
