Lt. Governor Joe Garcia visited Van Buren Elementary School on October 8 to observe the local implementation of the Colorado Reading Corps program, a TSD partnership with United Way of Larimer County.
The Colorado Reading Corps is a research-based, data-driven program that utilizes AmeriCorps members trained in literacy interventions to provide tutoring to students who are at risk of falling behind in reading proficiency. The program has been rolled out at 14 elementary schools in Thompson School District, where approximately 400 students in kindergarten through third grade will receive one-on-one tutoring during the 2014-2015 school year.
A special "thank you" goes out to Lt. Governor Garcia's office and the United Way of Larimer County for making this visit possible!
