RTA Yearly Reports

The Kentucky Read to Achieve (KY RTA) Program was created under Senate Bill 19 in 2005 with the goal of supporting schools in implementing a reading diagnostic and intervention program to address the needs of struggling readers. More specifically, the KY RTA program was designed to identify and provide intensive reading and intervention programs to struggling readers within primary grades (K-3). There is flexibility in the intervention programs from which participating schools may choose, but several aspects of program implementation are required and therefore common across participating schools. The RTA Yearly Reports can be found at the bottom of the page linked to above.
