Success Story: Montgomery Public Schools
In the words of one of our board members,
”It’s a Montgomery miracle.”
– MPS Assistant Superintendent Mike Looney
Montgomery Public Schools (MPS) implemented Earobics software in every kindergarten classroom in the district as part of the Alabama Reading First Initiative and Alabama Reading Initiative.
In the first year, MPS elementary students made the largest reading gains of any school district in Alabama on the state-mandated DIBELS assessment, improving from 123rd to 17th out of 135 districts.
68 percent of MPS elementary students achieved the state benchmark on DIBELS by the following spring, compared to only 37 percent just a few months earlier in fall.
