New study shows impact of PRIME TIME on reading scores

ReNEW Charter Schools in New Orleans recently shared a study comparing the scores of students who participated in PRIME TIME Family Reading programs versus those of non-PRIME TIME participants.

The 2015-16 report shows that students who attended PRIME TIME outperformed their peers on two literacy assessments of students’ language and early reading and writing behaviors. Additionally, teachers who participated in PRIME TIME also benefited from the program. Students of the teachers who participated as PRIME TIME facilitators or coordinators in 2015-16 scored 10% above school average in the STEP end-of-year mastery of print awareness objectives.
