Reading Power uses universal assessments throughout the academic year to measure student growth. Students are also assessed daily to inform the next day’s instruction. This individualized intervention supports development of fundamental skills and independent reading practices.
During the 2022-2023 school year, 70% of Reading Power students
met grade level expectations and increased an average of five book levels. Since our program began, kindergarten and first grade students made on average five times the gains and second grade three times the gains in advancement toward grade level literacy.
“When I talk about Reading Power we can talk about the instructional value and the gains students make which is certainly important but the love and nurturing you give to the students is equally important. They will remember that and take that with them. They genuinely love you guys.”
Keely Roberts, Superintendent, Zion School District 6
