KINDERGARTEN BENCHMARKS INCREASE FROM 47% TO 92% IN JUST THREE YEARS!

Sixteen elementary schools, in the 6th largest district in Pennsylvania, soar to success in raising their kindergarten benchmark scores to an unprecedented level of achievement by implementing a comprehensive MTSS process with Step By Step Learning®.

Bethlehem Area School District (BASD), PA’s 6th largest school system and the #1 Most Diverse District in PA has chosen Step By Step Learning (SBSL) to be their MTSS implementation partner as they continue to usher in reforms that have dramatically improved literacy in their district. The end of year assessment scores in Kindergarten rose from 47% in 2015 to a projected 92% in 2018 with the help of Step By Step Learning’s team of trainers and advisor-literacy coaches.

BASD is excited to engage SBSL district wide in pre-K through grade 5. When BASD administrators set a goal of having ALL students reading on grade level by the end of third grade, they knew they needed to start with their youngest students. After three years of intensive literacy training conducted by Step By Step Learning® for teachers, principals and administrators, everyone is floored by the results they are witnessing.
