Summary

This study reports results of the first year of implementation of the Success for All elementary school restructuring program in kindergarten through third grade at Philadelphia's Francis Scott Key Elementary School. Fifty-two percent of the students were from Asian backgrounds, primarily Cambodian, and spoke little or no English at home. In the evaluation of the program, all kindergarten through grade 3 students at the school and its comparison school were given several tests, including the Woodcock Language Proficiency Battery, Durrell Analysis of Reading Difficulty, the Philadelphia Public Schools' Citywide Test, and the Bilingual Syntax Measure. Although methodological limitations of the study render the conclusions tentative, results indicate a strong positive effect of the Success for All program on the reading performance of limited English proficient students. This effect was seen most dramatically in the second grade, in which substantial effects were found on all measures. It is concluded that Success for All is working at Francis Scott Key. (RH)
