Evaluation of Texas Reading First (2007)

The State of Texas applied in April, 2003 for Reading First (RF) funding and was awarded approximately $532.5 million over a period of six years to implement and evaluate RF across Texas. Written into this original application was a plan to evaluate RF activities, materials and providers at the level of the Texas Reading First leadership. In August of 2006, Hezel Associates, LLC was awarded a contract to carry out an program-wide evaluation. Hezel Associates' comprehensive evaluation strategy encompassed a critical examination of activities, materials, and providers associated with the implementation of Reading First in Texas. Our evaluation resulted in a set of recommendations to TEA regarding the effectiveness of the program leadership and recommendations for program improvement for greater long-term impact.
