CK3LI Reading Program UpdateApril 26, 2016
I am pleased to announce that under the CK3LI reading program, the Norris and Langford Elementary Schools have more than doubled the number of students meeting grade literacy level goals.
The CK3LI reading program was established in 2012 under a pilot initiative for employing the latest science in reading instruction to help the students most in need of intervention. Since using the program, both Norris and Langford Elementary Schools have more than halved the number of students at significant risk for reading failure. Statistics from Norris Elementary School show that first grade students at high risk reading failure fell from 35 percent in 2012 to 4 percent in 2015. The number of first grade students at high risk reading failure at Langford Elementary School also showed a significant decrease, from 17 percent in 2013 to 3 percent in 2015.
