The purpose of this research study was to determine the effects of an intensive reading intervention provided to students in primary grades (kindergarten-second grade). A cohort of 400 students was followed from kindergarten through fifth grade to determine reading achievement effects as students progressed through school. Scores from third and fifth grade reading assessments were used to evaluate the short-term and long-term effects of a district-developed program. Effects of the program were examined as they related to students who exited the intervention successfully, those who failed to exit the intervention and for those never needing intervention.
