Reading Recovery is an individualized literacy intervention program for students at risk of failing to read by the end of first grade. Lesley University in Cambridge houses a training center for the Reading Recovery program. The state provides funding for the program to assist with implementing Reading Recovery and delivering professional development of teachers who can become experts in this approach and share these practices with educators and students.

Reading Recovery trains professionals to be one on one tutors to children identified as at risk for being unable to read by the end of first grade. Participating students receive daily 30 minute lessons for 3-5 months, taught by a teacher trained in the specific practices of Reading Recovery. The state grant goes to help districts identify students most in need, provide professional development and support to teachers, and to undertake ongoing evaluation and documentation of results from intervention efforts.

According to Lesley University, 1,300 students received Reading Recovery Support in 2013-2014, 1,000 of whom completed the course. Among those who completed Reading Recovery, 69 percent, or 721 students, attained the literacy skills necessary to catch up to peers in the same grade.

In different years, Reading Recovery has been a stand-alone line item, as well as being an earmark funded as part of larger literacy programs. In FY 2016, funding for Reading Recovery was funded through an earmark in Literacy Programs (7010-0033).
