Physical Literacy Case Study - Scott County

Scott County School District was seeking a solution for students whose reading performance was significantly below their potential, as perceived by their teachers. Many of these students held outside diagnoses of dyslexia and demonstrated poor reading performance relative to other academic indicators.

Scott County is geographically located in East Central Mississippi and supports four elementary schools: Lake Elementary School, Morton Elementary School, Sebastopol Attendance Center, and Scott Central Attendance Center.

Previous resources had been utilized with most of the student participants. However, each of the students performed below the national average in reading.

15 students participated in STEP during the 2015/16 school year, the first year of implementation at Scott County School District. Of the 15 students, 4 attended Sebastopol Elementary, 2 attended Morton Elementary, 5 attended Lake Elementary, and another 4 attended Scott Central Attendance Center. The students ranged from 2nd to 5th grades.
