The After-School Reading Program, designed by the Literacy Center, provides an on-site intervention model for struggling readers performing below grade level, but not classified. Tutoring is done twice a week for 12 weeks; students can graduate or continue at the end of the program. Tutors are district teachers who can be compensated with designated after-school funds or grant money. A three-hour professional development session will be provided for participating tutors.
