SUMMER 2000 NEFEC conducted a survey of schools
in member districts to assess reading needs in
schools ranging from K-12. Seventy schools
responded indicating more than 50 different
reading programs being used throughout the
region.

FALL 2000 40 Individuals representing the
Florida Department of Education, NEFEC and member
districts traveled to Birmingham to observe the
Alabama Reading Initiative in a variety of
schools.
WINTER 2001 NEFEC and PK Yonge Developmental and
Research School staff returned to Alabama to
attend training and obtain training modules.
