Reading Recovery is implemented by education districts and consortia that are affiliated with Reading Recovery University Training Centers (UTC) in the United States and with Regional Institutes (RI) in Canada. Typically one or more school systems decide to implement Reading Recovery and employ one or more Teacher Leaders to train Teachers for Reading Recovery. In cases where a school district is too small to establish a teacher training site, administrators can contact a UTC or nearby teacher training sites about the possibility of affiliation.
The decision to implement Reading Recovery with fidelity is a collaborative partnership among teachers, administrators, parents, and university personnel. Strong coordination and communication among groups contribute to the success of any implementation.
