This presentation investigates a mid-size district that transformed a critical mass of students reading below grade level to performing at a Tier 1 level of reading. This goal was accomplished through teaching structured literacy daily to students in grades K through 2. Not only did students gain in their reading skills, but teachers learned how to teach the science of reading, and administrators learned how important it was to become literacy leaders. Formative data will be used to demonstrate growth over time.
