Reading Help for Delaware Students
By the end of third grade, children are expected to apply their reading skills to master subjects like math, science, history, and geography. Without a strong foundation in reading, many children are left behind at the beginning of their education.
74 percent of students who read poorly in third grade won’t ever catch up.
In partnership with our schools, Reading Assist supports struggling readers in the lowest 10% for reading proficiency. We recruit, train, and embed Reading Assist Fellows to provide daily reading instruction to help students reach grade-level benchmarks.
