Our Initiatives

A2i K-3

A2i helps teachers identify the reading needs of each child, providing recommendations for how to use classroom time with existing curricular materials for every child in their classroom. The web-based platform combines quick, adaptive assessments of word reading, vocabulary, and comprehension with evidence-based algorithms for grades Pre-K-3rd.

Read Charlotte has tracked the research behind A2i since 2017, and consider it the most promising, high-impact solution we’ve seen with strong evidence of improving K-3rd grade outcomes.

One local charter school began using A2i in fall 2021, and Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools began a pilot of A2i in six elementary schools in early 2022. We continue to advocate for the use of A2i across Mecklenburg County.
