District Profile: Saratoga Springs

District Profile: Saratoga Springs

After just one year of implementation of ARC Core in grades K–2, Saratoga Springs City School District students have seen impressive growth:

  • The percentage of second graders reading on or above grade level nearly doubled and the percentage of first graders reading on or above grade level more than tripled.

  • 78% of first and second graders who began the year working at “emergency”* were no longer working at “emergency.”

Kindergarten students made great strides in developing their writing skills. The student work below shows how one kindergarten student’s letter formation, spacing, spelling of high-frequency words, self-expression, and communication of scientific knowledge grew over four months. This student used foundational skills to write about science concepts in the first half of kindergarten!
