Explanation of how we are able to provide differentiated services to meet the individual needs of schools and districts.

Keys to Literacy has a proven track record over 12 years of providing literacy professional development to over 400 schools and district across the United States. We have worked with a wide variety of schools that range from wealthy suburban schools to high-poverty city schools, and high-performing to low-performing schools. We have also consulted to numerous state departments of education to participate in literacy related curriculum and teacher training projects.

How will we evaluate our services and support to schools and districts and its effectiveness in school/ district/ student achievement?

Part of the Keys to Literacy PD model includes evaluation by teachers and administrators of the quality of the literacy training provided by Keys to Literacy.
