The Clark County School District is touting the success of a new program designed to improve student reading skills and educator effectiveness.
The Reading Skills Development Centers are a partnership between CCSD and UNLV and have been set up in six elementary schools. The centers focus on students kindergarten through third grade.
Tutors, coaching and master-reading teachers are all used in the centers to help students improve their reading skills.
Students from Camberio, Long, Manch, Martinez, Peterson and Williams elementary schools are benefitting from the program.
Those schools were chosen because they have a high number of English language learners, and low reading scores. However, the principals and staff were committed to increasing reading skills and improving instruction techniques.
