Research & Data
Achieving grade-level reading is directly impacted by rate of attendance of afterschool programs that offer interventions aligned with in-school instruction, according to data gathered by the Reading Roadmap at its 58 partner schools in Kansas.
The recent study found a direct correlation across schools in grades K-3 between attendance in afterschool programming and reading progress as measured by school-administered assessments.
The Reading Roadmap uses science-based early literacy interventions in out-of-school environments to impact the future of children. This structured-literacy approach brings phonics-based, explicit instruction into out-of-school programs, helping struggling readers close the achievement gap, and assisting proficient reading achieve their fullest potential.
