PITTSBURGH

OUR OFFER :
As measured by the Future Ready PA Index, our partnership will improve Pittsburgh Elementary schools student success by committing to 90% students at or above grade level by 2024. All students achieve a full year of growth to improve PVAAS ratings.

HOW CAN WE DO IT?   We are an outcome delivery partnership with districts, charter and private school networks.  Though we achieve over 90+% of children reading at grade level by the end of third grade, we primarily do this by providing a Professional Support System for teachers.  Whereby we align technology, data, existing resource investments and coaching to support all teachers in achieving these transformative outcomes.

The Science of Reading

What Makes Us Different?

Dr. Carol Connor

Principal Researcher and Creator of A2i 

Research and practice 

sets us apart

Dr. Carol Connor, the lead researcher whose work proved instrumental in the A2i breakthrough understood there will always be external factors impinging on a child’s ability to achieve reading outcomes: poverty, book availability, homelessness, Internet access, broken homes, mobility, fear, two-career families. 
 

Irrespective of all environmental factors, our 15 years of work in this space and our remarkable outcomes show we can achieve over 90% of children reading at, or above, grade level by third grade’s end. Responding to Covid-19 is no different. We’ve brought children with below grade level language skills up to, and beyond, grade level.  We've dramatically reduced the need for interventions. 

And yet her research focused on what schools can do once a child walks through the kindergarten door. Yes, COVID 19 is the latest in a long journey of environmental slights preventing children from reading at grade level. But it’s a challenge we can solve together.
