Suggesting that creating a report for each school involved in the Reading Recovery program can have a powerful impact, this paper shows the current model of campus reports for the Spring Branch Independent School District, Houston, Texas. The report form described in the paper is continually growing and changing through need and collaboration with principals and team members. It discusses including (1) the school's history; (2) the outcomes for every child; (3) sharing student data; (4) longitudinal components; (5) ownership for each child; (6) data on daily lessons; (7) service by teachers; (8) level of implementation; (9) data from questionnaires; and (10) a section on school team considerations. The paper concludes that the reports are worth whatever time and energy they require because data-driven decisions are the most powerful and have the greatest impact. Contains 4 references and 8 figures illustrating what can be included in these reports. (RS)
