By Tracy Hall, Ben Schooley, Tim Milledge,

Page 2: Strengths      Weaknesses      Opportunities  Threats

Reading First is a national effort to support states to make every child a proficient reader.

Page 3: Strengths      Weaknesses      Opportunities  Threats

The Chariton School District began participation in the Reading First program in 2003 and were able to renew our participation in 2006.

This is the fifth year and final year of the program.

These scores are used for 2 purposes: One to look at how our students are doing and 2nd to determine if the students met the performance benchmark which is 75% - and you can see that the kindergartners did have all 3 tests above that criteria.

These fluency scores are obtained from the John’s Basic Reading inventory simultaneously as a word accuracy score and comprehension score are also taken. The wpm criteria changes from fall to spring, so this is the one test where there is a moving target. To increase achievement here, means that not only those proficient gained, but some students who were not proficient in the fall grew to that level and then on to the spring level.

Ses, males, disabilities students performing as well or better than student with economic advantage, females, or students without disabilities.Because of our work in fluency and the close tie between fluent reading and good comprehension, our comprehension scores continue to be our strength. With a different class every year, this will always be a focus.

Page 9: Strengths      Weaknesses      Opportunities  Threats

Basic Reading Inventory (BRI) data is used to monitor the program’s progress.

Students are tested three times a year in the areas of fluency (words per minute), accuracy, and comprehension.

The fall & spring tests use the same BRI testing form, the winter test uses a different form.

Accuracy Goal: 95% or higher; Comprehension Goal: 85% or higher; WPM goal is relative to the grade level.

To help every student reach proficiency in reading by the end of 3rd grade.

To identify the reading levels of each student.

To create interventions to help students improve their reading skills.

Page 11: Strengths      Weaknesses      Opportunities  Threats

Students are receiving 90 minutes of uninterrupted reading instruction per day.

Teachers have received training and are implementing scientifically based reading research strategies.

Page 12: Strengths      Weaknesses      Opportunities  Threats

Data shows that students are coming into each year performing stronger in certain areas of reading.

All teachers are on the “same page” for reading instruction.

Data is used for SAT, reported to parents, & drives instruction.

Makes teachers accountable.

Page 13: Strengths      Weaknesses      Opportunities  Threats

Some of the weaknesses of the program include:

Time Requirements, 90 minutes uninterrupted reading.

Getting everyone involved with the initiative and applying strategies in their instruction.

Redundancy & repetition of some of the components.

Narrowing of the curriculum, difficult to allocate enough time to other areas of the curriculum.

Page 14: Strengths      Weaknesses      Opportunities  Threats

Professional development to train teachers.

Funding to buy resources such as non-fiction books, PWIM posters, & other teaching materials.

Ability to better educate students in reading to help them reach proficient reading levels.

Page 15: Strengths      Weaknesses      Opportunities  Threats

Will teachers continue to use the strategies learned through the program?

We will lose funding for resources.Training new staff will be difficult.The program requires a lot of training

& takes a lot of time to implement.Will teachers continue with multiple

observations to monitor student progress?

Page 16: Strengths      Weaknesses      Opportunities  Threats

Continued use of:

Non-fiction books

Leveled Books

Explicit Instruction

Repeated Reading

Highly Qualified Teachers

Page 17: Strengths      Weaknesses      Opportunities  Threats

Define what are the essential components of the program that need to be continued.

Continue to have administrative support, evaluation, and staff dialogue.

Continue to periodically collect & analyze BRI data.
