Too many students in our classrooms struggle with learning to read, including those with learning disabilities and dyslexia. Research has shown that 90-95 percent of ALL students can be taught to read at grade level. The challenge of improving students’ academic achievement on a school-wide and district-wide basis is daunting at best. Students’ literacy skills can improve significantly when schools focus on five critical and interrelated areas: Standards, Assessments, Instruction & Intervention, Leadership and Sustained Commitment (SAILS) and use an effective framework such as MTSS for implementing the plan.

This session reviews the research-base for SAILS, and describes how the most effective schools use each component to create a systemic, multi-component plan that improves the proficiency of both challenged as well as highly-skilled students, so all students can achieve the most ambitious standards.
