Ypsilanti Community Schools students improved Reading test scores by more than 10%
Ypsilanti Community Schools wanted to create a summer reading program specifically targeting at-risk students in grade 3-8
YCS sought to both boost reading skills to improve test scores as well as build student confidence in reading which would help student success across all subject areas.
YCS and Elevate K-12 partnered to develop a customized, six-week program pairing students with instructors to not only practice reading skills but to do so in an interactive and supportive, one-on-one environment, which allowed all learners to be confident and successful.
Over the course of the six-week program, students improved reading test scores by more than 10% -- including some grade levels with rates into the high tens.
Beyond the numbers, instructors reported they saw once-struggling students being empowered to take the reigns in helping their classmates.
