Title I Reading Program
The Title I Reading Program is offered at Kearney Elementary for K-5 students, which is the only Title I school in the Kearney School District. Services include reading intervention for students who are identified through multiple criteria (such as screenings, teacher input, observation, etc.) as needing support services. The Special Reading Program is designed for students who fall below grade level expectations in the area of reading.
Services include small group instruction of 4-6 students, for 30-40 minutes on 3-5 days of the school week. The program is designed to give students a boost and provide intensive, explicit instruction in the area of reading. This does not replace but enhances what the child receives in the classroom.
In addition, Kearney Elementary students have the opportunity to participate in the Rising Stars after school tutoring program, for students to receive additional support in reading or math. Transportation is provided for students participating in the Rising Stars program.
