C11 - Approval for the Purchase of Achieve3000 Blended Literacy Solution for 2021-2022 and 2022-2023

Achieve3000 provides individual reading levels for each student, text sets, and activities that are aligned to the Florida Standards and at the appropriate level to encourage reading progress and mastery of the standards on a blended learning platform. Achieve3000 is one of the nation’s leaders in differentiated literacy solutions. 

Achieve 3000 web-based software engines determine a student’s reading level and deliver grade-appropriate content that is precisely customized to individual needs. Students will first take an online Lexile assessment tool for accurate placement in the program. This enables progress to be made immediately. Following this, students receive level-appropriate reading and writing assignments daily. All students in a classroom read about the same topic, but the passages and follow-up activities adjust to their Lexile Level. Writing activities are connected to daily reading, and all content and assignments are correlated to state standards. The accompanying lesson guides offer a roadmap for implementing instruction in a Whole Group/Small Group Rotations instructional model. Reassessment of reading levels takes place throughout the school year, ensuring that students are always working within their instructional zones. In addition, program reporting provides teachers and administrators with real-time diagnostic data on student performance in and out of school. The reports, available 24/7, enable individualized intervention and remediation on the strategies and on state standards.

Gap Analysis

Remediation and enrichment activities are paramount in assisting students in reaching their full potential based on their individual reading level. Text selections with standards-aligned questions that provide multiple perspectives, from multiple genres are needed to meet the demands of the standards. The increased emphasis on technology mandates the need to incorporate blended learning opportunities daily.

Opportunities for growth surround the need for teachers to deliver lessons to a diverse population with varying needs and remedial practices to assist students in achieving standard mastery. Achieve3000 provides a vehicle for teachers to teach the same lesson to the entire class while differentiating based on individual student Lexile Levels. Remediation occurs through lessons that align to standards and provide students skill building for comprehension and vocabulary based on ongoing Lexile Level Sets.

The incorporation of Achieve3000 in the instructional day has been successful. Continual assistance for teachers with using available data to determine instructional next steps and selecting reading materials that meet the text complexity necessary to increase student achievement will be provided throughout the school year.

Previous Outcomes

The district demonstrated an overall increase in literacy measured by state assessment in 2017-18, 2018-19, and all data demonstrated continued growth through the first 3 quarters of 2019-20.

Expected Outcomes

The District will increase ELA Reading proficiency in grades 3-10 by 3% and set proficiency targets in 202-22 based on proficiency achievement in 2017-18 and 2018-19.

Strategic Plan Goal

Goal 1: Develop a High Quality & Aligned Instructional System 

Strategy 1.1 Provide teachers and students with the tools and resources necessary to meet the demands of the Florida Standards and students' individual needs.
