For the past two years, additional reading intervention services has been made possible through the S.H. Cowell Foundation at three NHUSD/ Kids’ Zone Elementary school sites.  This has been a great opportunity to learn about what approaches gain the most growth to close the achievement gap.  Intervention services will continue through 2015-2016 at Searles Elementary.

Our grant from the S.H. Cowell Foundation funds a Reading Intervention Teacher who provides extra small group reading instruction within the regular classrooms, preparing students to succeed at the next grade level.
