Reading is the Key to Learning

This grant aims to make a drastic impact in an area that my school district seems to have a great concern with. Reading among GAP students is one of, if not the most, overwhelming concern that faces our state’s achievement gap. To reach the students that have, in the past, been deemed unreachable, we must think outside of the box and discover ways to influence and encourage the importance of reading.

As I wrote this grant, one thing became increasingly evident; how important reading is to all areas of scholastic progress. Using the technology that we have purchased with the grant money, we will be implementing a systematic approach to see what programs work well and impact student’s reading abilities.
