Students in need of supplementary reading and mathematics instruction were identified, their specific needs determined, and prescriptive activities formulated. Prescriptive reading and math teachers were responsible for program implementation and coordination with classroom teachers in three elementary schools and one junior high school. Staff training activities were carried out, and a total of 17 objectives were identified for participants in the reading component. Posttest findings using the Prescriptive Reading Inventory as the measuring instrument indicated that all students in the program obtained the goals. Fourteen objectives were identified for participants in the math component. The Diagnostic Mathematics Inventory was used as a posttest instrument and indicated that all but one of the participating students achieved all math goals. (MK)
