Brevard & Seminole Case Study
Brevard and Seminole County Public Schools, Florida
For the past five years, 95 Percent Group has been the RTI consultant working with two large districts in Florida—Seminole and Brevard―on a progressive rollout of RTI in phases across all the schools in their district. Both districts have contracted our company to provide extensive professional development training for administrators and reading coaches of all elementary buildings (38 buildings in Seminole and 68 buildings in Brevard) and to provide site-based mentoring, coaching, and modeling at grades K–3 for the Title I and lowest-performing schools in the district.
Both districts used our phonological awareness and phonics diagnostic screeners (Phonics Screener for Intervention™ and Phonological Awareness Screener for Intervention™), along with DIBELS® or another curriculum-based measurement (CBM) tool, and 95 Percent Group’s Blueprint for Intervention:® intervention lessons.
Florida’s 2009 assessment (FCAT) data shows that Seminole and Brevard are ranked first and second in grade 3 reading scores of the 17 largest districts in the state.
