Three WCPS Schools Receive Read To Achieve Grant





Warren County Public Schools continues to focus on one of its top priorities, ensuring student learning, thanks to grant funding that will allow several schools to grow their reading intervention programs.  Three WCPS elementary schools have received the Read to Achieve grant from the Kentucky Department of Education, which provides funds for a Reading Intervention Teacher and training for one classroom teacher per year. 


Richardsville, Rich Pond, and Rockfield elementary schools will receive $50,000 a year over a two-year-period and will be eligible to request a grant renewal for an additional two years is contingent upon successful implementation of all program components, grant requirement compliance, demonstrated student progress and the availability of funds.


The state-wide program was created in 2005 with the goal of helping schools implement a “reading diagnostic and intervention program to address the needs of struggling readers.” The WCPS Reading Intervention Teachers will join each of the schools in August to start the 2017-18 academic year.
