The Program for Reading Success was designed to improve the reading skills for first through ninth graders identified as being in need of remediation. Funding was supplied by Title I and Impact Aid. The program served 1,320 students and employed 22 teachers. Teachers gave individualized and small group instruction based on an intensive diagnostic program designed to isolate specific reading disabilities. The program was supplementary to regular reading programs. Inservice training sessions were provided for teachers. The Stanford Early School Achievement Test and the Stanford Achievement Test were used as pre and post test measurement tools. Data indicated a mean overall growth in reading grade equivalent scores of 13 months for first through third graders and 13.7 months for second through ninth grade Title I students. Reading Success Impact Aid students gained a mean of 12.3 months in reading achievement. On the basis of these data, it was asserted that the Reading Success Program helped to reduce the gap between Title I students and their non Title I peers. (MK)
