Resources Available for Struggling Readers

Read At Home Plan:
Learning begins in the home. You are your child’s first teacher, and reading with your child is a proven way to promote early literacy. Helping to make sure your child is reading on grade level by the end of third grade is one of the most important things you can do to prepare him/her for the future. Reading with your child for at least 20 minutes a day and using a few simple strategies from our Read-At-Home Plan can make a positive impact on your child’s success in school.

We are happy to provide you with this Read-At-Home plan, which includes strategies you can use to help your child become a more proficient reader and cultivate a love of reading. Click Here: Read-At-Home Plan

Scholarships:

Students who received a Florida State Assessment (FSA) Score of Level 1 in English Language Arts (ELA) automatically qualify for the scholarship.

The state program provides families with access to education savings accounts, worth $500 to pay for tuition and fees associated with part-time tutoring in reading, in summer and after school programs designed to improve reading and literacy skills through instructional materials and curriculum aligned to grade-level literacy standards. Scholarships are limited and offered on a first come first serve basis, the application window opens August 13th.
