Our A.E.S. reading specialists are dedicated teachers who work with small groups of students to improve their reading skills. The reading program is funded by two different sources - Title I federal funds and Montgomery County monies. These funds make it possible for our specialists to work with students in grades K-3.
Currently, we have three "Title I" reading teachers and one county reading teacher. The Title I teachers are also responsible for providing the international program, Reading Recovery, which is a one-on-one teaching service for first graders who need extra help with their reading development.
Another key component of the A.E.S. reading program is to provide opportunities for parental involvement in literacy activities. Several events are offered throughout the year to help parents become more aware of the important roles they play in their children's literacy development.
