"In looking at our SRI inventories at the end of the school year and the beginning of the following year; I found that students who utilized the Footsteps2Brilliance during the summer reading program whose Lexile was BR (beginning readers) improved their Lexile scores ranging from 90 up to 195 when they took the SRI Inventory again in the Fall.
Also, an interesting side note: Many students who did NOT utilize the summer reading program who fall under the at risk band had decreased Lexile scores in the Fall.

This is “terrific stuff” and it is a beginning of many to come about how successful Footsteps2Brilliance can be! These results are gathered during the summer reading program which is a voluntary offering for Maxwell!!
