Introduction to the Case Study


Before An Achievable Dream’s middle schools began implementing Voyager Sopris Learning’s LANGUAGE!® Live program three years ago, significant deficiencies in school readiness or language arts skills were common, particularly among younger students. A majority of students in An Achievable Dream’s districts are minority students. Nearly 97 percent of students are eligible for free or reduced lunch. The high poverty rates in the district meant elementary school students already were lagging academically by the time they arrived. District officials needed an impactful way to improve overall school readiness and foundational language arts skills.
