Houston Independent School District
Strategic Reading and Writing (SRW) is a reading and writing intervention course available to sixth- through tenth-grade students in the Houston Independent School District (HISD) who did not meet Grade Level standards on the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) grades 3-8 reading the previous school year or who fell below the 40th percentile on the District's norm referenced test (NRT) total reading score (HISD, 2017). SRW classes are restricted to 20 students and are facilitated by certified and trained teachers. The objective of SRW is to: (1) meet students at their instructional level to remediate and strengthen literacy systems within, about, and beyond texts; (2) prepare students for grade-level coursework through aligned genre-specific tasks and support; and (3) prepare students to increase achievement on state tests through strategic actions and increased reading levels. The purpose of this evaluation was to assess the SRW effect on students' reading performance. The evaluation also assessed teachers' perceptions and experiences with the implementation of SRW.
