Neill Elementary has been awarded Minnesota Reading Corps tutors for the 2017-2018 school year! We will have 2 Reading Corps Tutors next year, who will work with kids who need a boost to catch up to grade level in reading. Minnesota Reading Corps tutors are AmeriCorps members and do not replace teachers. Every year, the program sees real growth in its students. Here's what you should know:
We are recruiting now for our Elementary Literacy Tutors who will serve at our school for 11 months, beginning in August 2017. Tutors provide research-based interventions to Kindergarten – 3rd grade students one-on-one, who are just below proficiency in reading (Tier II children). They tutor each student daily for 15-20 minutes to build phonics, phonemic awareness, and fluency skills. Reading Corps provides our school with the expertise of an outside literacy consultant (Master Coach) who provides support and oversight by visiting the school regularly.
