In 2009–10, approximately two-thirds of the students at Clinton Middle School (Oklahoma) were reading below grade level. In addition, Clinton teachers lacked the time to develop strategies that might help these students improve. Under SIG, Clinton extended the teachers’ workday by one hour to provide additional professional development activities focused on improving reading instruction for all teachers. The professional development for teachers is supported by school-based reading and mathematics coaches and three SIG-funded professional development consultants.
