In 2011, The McKnight Foundation partnered on a preK–3 literacy initiative with a set of districts and schools in the Twin Cities area, all serving high-needs students. The Pathway Schools Initiative aims to dramatically increase the number of students who reach the critical milestone of grade 3 reading proficiency, an indicator predictive of later academic outcomes and high school graduation. This report presents findings from Phase I of the Pathway Schools Initiative (2011–15).
