The Reading First State Data Profiles provides a snapshot of the implementation of the Reading First program in the 50 States, the District of Columbia, the Bureau of Indian Affairs, American Samoa, and the Virgin Islands. The data were compiled from two sources. States provided the data on the amount of funding received for fiscal years 2002 through 2006 and the number of local educational agencies (LEAs) and schools participating. The Southwest Education Development Laboratory collected the data on behalf of the Department. The estimates of the number of teachers and children participating is based on data collected by National Center for Education Statistics' Common Core of Data. See report: PDF (4.2M). (March 2007)
