Wichita Falls I.S.D. created the Partners in Education Read2Learn program one year ago. The homegrown program pairs volunteers with second-graders. Each volunteer meets with the student once or twice a week to give them more reading practice.
After just one year, 350 Read2Learn volunteers invested 3,88—volunteer hours helping 196 kids on eight different campuses. By the end of the school year, 90-percent of the kids were reading on their grade level.
