Title
Contract with 95 Percent Group, Inc.

Discussion

In an effort to support the district in achieving Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) status, Title I has included assessment and intervention training for literacy coaches as a component of the School Improvement Grant approved by the board in October. On December 15, 2010, consultants from the 95 Percent Group, Inc. will provide training for all elementary literacy coaches in the effective use of diagnostic assessment data to assist teachers in focusing their intervention instruction. Each literacy coach will be responsible for providing site-based professional development, mentoring, and coaching for teachers as they strive to close the achievement gap for all subgroups. This contract is an adjunct of the district's larger contract with the 95 Percent Group, Inc. for teacher training.

This contract directly impacts district strategic plan goals 1.2.3, 1.2.4 and 1.2.5 pertaining to attainment of AYP.



Recommendation
Approve the contract for $3,850 with 95 Percent Group, Inc. for training elementary literacy coaches.
