Jacksonville, FL – In 2007, the Duval County School District Superintendent participated in the ICARE Reading Summit, along with 75 school principals and reading coaches. The Superintendent then agreed to identify five low performing elementary schools as “turn around” schools for phonics-based reading instruction and increased resources and training to establish reading proficiency, as well as DIBELS testing to track progress. Since then a total of fifteen turn-around schools have been identified.
