SUCCESS FOR ALL (SFA)

Success for All is a comprehensive school reform model that includes a reading, writing and oral language development program for students in pre-kindergarten through grade 8. Its underlying premise is that all children can and should be reading at grade-level by the end of third grade and then remain at grade-level thereafter.

Classroom reading instruction is delivered to students by reading ability in daily 90-minute blocks. Immediate intervention with tutors who are certified teachers is given daily to those students who are having difficulty reading at the same level as their classmates. A full-time SFA® facilitator employed by the school supports classroom instruction by training teachers, overseeing student assessments, and assisting with decisions about group placement and tutoring. Family Support Teams work on parent involvement, absenteeism and student behavior.

Success for All is an evidence-based practice rated by the U. S. Department of Education’s What Works Clearinghouse (WWC). The WWC considers the extent of evidence for SFA® to be medium-to-large for alphabetics, comprehension and general reading achievement.
