IDEA B Indicator 17, the State Systemic Improvement Plan
New Mexico’s Results Driven Accountability Project (RDA) meets the requirements of IDEA B Indicator 17, the State Systemic Improvement Plan. RDA is focused on early elementary reading achievement in a subset of public elementary schools. The project’s goals include increasing reading achievement for all students in Kindergarten through grade three, with a specific emphasis on students scoring in the lowest quartile. The project is a collaborative effort among the Title I Bureau, the Special Education Bureau, the Literacy Bureau, the Priority Schools Bureau, Parents Reaching Out (PRO), Education for Parents of Indian Children with Special Needs (EPICS), Eastern New Mexico University, REC #6, REC #7, and REC #8.
RDA schools are provided professional development, coaching, technical assistance, and additional funds to support school improvement targeted to early elementary reading achievement.
