Utah's K-3 Reading Improvement Program provides state matching funds to help districts and charter schools achieve the state's goal of having third graders read at or above grade level. All 40 Utah school districts took part in both Year 1 (2004/05) and Year 2 (2005/06) of the program, and the number of participating charter schools increased in Year 2. This report presents the Year 2 analysis, which addresses the following key questions: (1) How have participating school districts and charter schools carried out the provisions of the state legislation? and (2) What outcomes are evident after two years of program implementation? Program funds most commonly supported key components of the Utah K-3 Literacy Framework for Successful Instruction and Intervention, specifically tiered literacy instruction, small-group literacy instruction, and focused professional development. More participating districts and charters reported meeting their self-established goals in Year 2, and statewide grade-level proficiency rates increased slightly for grades 1 and 3. Five appendixes include: (A) The SB 230 Legislation; (B) Utah's K-3 Reading Improvement Program: State and Local Funding for Fiscal 2005-07; (C) Summary of WestEd's SB 230 Year 1 Report; (D) Self-Reported SB 230 Program Information by District or Charter School; and (E) Individual District and Charter School Data: Self-Reported Proficiency Goals and Results. (Contains 2 boxes, 3 figures, and 4 tables.)
