The Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) has made a $500,000 investment in the Corrective Reading program, which “provides intensive and accelerated reading intervention that give students the structure and practice necessary to become fluent readers.”
All 78 of the UCDSB’s schools will receive this intensive reading program, along with at least one trained teacher.
« The investment in staff and the investment in capital resources is really an investment in our students, » said Director of Education Ron Ferguson. « Having specialized teachers and specialized programming in place will set our students up for success. We know that reading is the foundation required for students to succeed in writing and math as well. Building these essential skills now will help students be more successful in school and beyond. »
