Volunteers focus on improving students’ reading using the STAR reading program, a fun and easy way to help students with fluency, vocabulary and comprehension. Tutoring occurs twice a week for 30 minutes over 30 weeks. An impressive 79% of the students who scored below proficiency on the previous year’s state assessment will score at proficiency after participation in this program.
