More Information About Our Research

  • The decision to implement Sonday System Essentials across the district was based on:

    • The results from surveys of Lindbergh teachers and students on the piloted phonics programs
    • Analysis of student achievement data during the 2018-19 school year
    • Review of research on the effectiveness of the piloted phonics programs and their underlying philosophies

    Hanover Research, an independent research organization based in Arlington, Va., supported the district’s evaluation of the five piloted phonics programs by designing, administering and analyzing the teacher survey, reviewing the research base supporting each phonics program, and synthesizing the collective findings from the evaluation.
