This multiple case study explores the supervisory and evaluative roles of three elementary school site administrators in relation to the literacy pull-out programs on each school site. These three administrators all worked at sites with low SES student populations yet had attained high standardized testing scores as compared to comparable schools in the state of California. Cross-case analysis found that these three administrators all had a strong knowledge base in the area of literacy development. They used this knowledge base as the foundation for the supervision and evaluation of literacy programs on their sites. As instructional leaders, they reflected upon individual student data and monitored the literacy programs in an ongoing manner. The cyclic nature of the supervision and evaluation allowed them to continually improve instruction for their at-risk students.
