its statutory obligations. The Leader, Information Management Case

the Evaluation of the Impact of Literacy Interventions in Freshman 
Academies. The baseline intake instrument will collect information from 
parents of children applying for admission to the literacy intervention 
included in the study. The administrative records instruments will be 
used to collect information on student outcomes such as test scores and 
will be completed by school or district staff in these schools as well 
as by control group students who attend the same schools. The study 
will examine the impacts of these literacy interventions on student 
outcomes over a one-year follow-up period.
