The final evaluation of a three-year project in an Indiana elementary school, funded by Title III of the Elementary Secondary Education Act, is reported in this document. Project READS (Reading Excellence Achieved through Differentiated Staffing), expected to continue after cessation of federal funding, seeks to improve both developmental reading instruction in grades four through six and remedial reading instruction with disabled--not retarded--readers by using a special staff (two teacher aides, one paraprofessional, and one project teacher) who work with two reading teachers, three interns, and various student teachers. Included in this document are the final report by the head reading teacher for the project with tables of test results for pupils in basic reading, vocabulary, and comprehension groups of the three grades and a discussion of the results of work with target children. Also provided are an outline of the differentiated staffing organization and duties, a copy of the project explanation handout for visitors, and copies of news releases concerning the project. (Copies of news releases may reproduce poorly). (JM)
