Success for All makes reading the cornerstone of the curriculum. For children to succeed in school, they must be reading on grade level by the end of the third grade and keep building reading skills through secondary school. They also need effective teachers, so SFA includes intensive professional development, ongoing coaching support, and data tools to give teachers feedback on how students are learning and where they need additional instruction or extra help. SFA involves the whole community in implementing effective instruction that
is based on the best research on what works.
Success for All makes learning fun and engaging for kids and helps teachers become knowledgeable, skilled instructional leaders.

Is Success for All a one-size-fits-all program?

Absolutely not! Success for All adapts to the needs of all learners in all kinds of schools. SFA includes proven strategies for English learners, response-to-intervention strategies with computer-assisted tutoring to help struggling students, and accommodations for urban and rural schools to meet their own specific needs. It provides a solid structure for effective instruction, while allowing teachers to use their knowledge and skills to deliver a dynamic and engaging learning program. There are even lessons adapted for whiteboard technology and multimedia activities with humorous puppets and appealing actors to help build students’ skills.

Race to the Top is a $4.35 billion competitive grant program established by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA).  The program was designed to encourage and reward states for enacting education policies that the Obama administration believes will improve students’ results, build school and school systems’ capacities and increase school systems’ productivity and effectiveness.

The Ohio Department of Education is spending the remaining $194 million to:

1. Increase high school graduation rates by .5% for each of the four years of the grant.

2. Reduce graduation rate gaps by 50% between under-represented and majority students.

3. Reduce performance gaps by 50% of national and state-wide tests between under-represented and majority students.

4. Reduce the performance gaps by 50% on reading and mathematics proficiency between Ohio and the best-performing states.

5. More than double college enrollment for students age 19 and younger.
