2015 Program Results

  • One parent survey said her child never wanted to read a book until the Third Grade Academy. He now reads a book all on his own and will choose books to take to someone’s house instead of toys.  Another parent survey said my child looked forward to the academy every day!  Another survey said my daughter loved it. Your program was so supporting to her and it really made her have an “I can do this attitude.”
  • Our 2nd grade classes had an average attendance rate of 91%.  They took a pre/post test on IREAD-2 and there was an average growth of 20%.  They also took a fluency pre/post test and the second graders had an average gain of 19 points.
  • The average spring IREAD-3 test score was 418 and after the summer IREAD-3 test the average was 475 which showed a growth of 57 points after the students attended the Third Grade Academy.
  • We had one English Language Learner student make a 155 point gain from the spring test to the summer test after attending our academy.
