Success for All (SFA)
Grove Patterson Academy offers Success for All (SFA), which is a comprehensive approach designed to ensure that every child will be successful in school by insuring that they read at grade level or above. The program, for grades Pre-K to 6, emphasizes prevention and early intervention to respond to and solve any child’s learning problems. Success for All provides schools:
- Powerful instructional processes that engage students.
- Extensive professional development.
- Assessment and progress-monitoring tools.
- A computer-based tutoring program for struggling students.
- Ongoing family involvement and community support.
The Success for All program is based on extensive research into the ways children learn to read and write. At the heart of the program is 90 minutes of uninterrupted, daily reading instruction. Beginning in the first grade, children are grouped across classes and grades by reading level. Regrouping gives each teacher the opportunity to work intensively with students one reading level at a time. Cooperative learning embedded throughout the program focuses on individual student accountability, common goals, and recognition of group success. Providing the opportunity to work with peers enables students to master basic reading skills as they continue to grow
Lesson support is provided by teacher guides and support materials designed specifically for every level. To access the specific SFA reading forms for your student’s reading level, please click below:
