ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) -- Nearly 40 local students who worked hard this school year to improve as readers and writers are now being recognized.
East High School honored its Literacy All-Star students with an awards ceremony and luncheon on Monday.
With the help of their teachers and the READ 180 intervention program, the 6th through 9th graders saw tremedous growth.
The program uses individualized computer software as well as whole group, small group, and individualized literacy instruction to help students improve.
"Keep reading, at least read two hours a day. It helps you out with your fluency and you could probably win an award like this someday by just being a good reader," said Kollin McCullough, award winner.
News10NBC told you last Friday that the Rochester school board is in the process of renewing the partnership between East High School and the University of Rochester for another five years.
It has made significant progress and improvement under the approved plan.
