Bring the benefits of Reading Corps to your school.
This school year, Wisconsin Reading Corps tutors will be working with students across the state. Nationally recognized for helping to close the achievement gap — our program can provide the extra support your students need to learn and succeed.
Independent research confirms that students who work with a Wisconsin Reading Corps tutor make more than a year's worth of progress on reading proficiency indicators.
Wisconsin Reading Corps is funded through a public-private partnership and schools pay no fees for the people, technology and evidence-based interventions we bring. You provide only in-kind coaching support and a workspace for tutors.
Data & Insight
Reading Corps provides teachers, administrators and parents with easy to read dashboards that show each student's progress. The program integrates with your school's Multi-tiered System of Supports to bring struggling students up to grade level.
Each year, approximately 60 percent of our tutors — more than 700 in all — tell us that their Reading Corps experience has inspired them to become educators. And principals routinely tell us they love to hire former Reading Corps tutors because of their extensive training, coaching and experience.
Two Approaches for Specific Needs
Tutors are embedded in the classroom to support Tier 1 instruction and provide additional small-group or one-on-one time for students in Tier 2 or 3.
The reach of the WI Reading Corps program has been extensive. We are thankful for the continued partnership and look forward to the ongoing work and celebrations of success.
"Students would not get this rigorous additional reading instruction that they need in order to help them become proficient readers without our Reading Corps tutors. What’s exciting about Reading Corps is that it is really allowing us to be proactive in helping students become proficient readers and catching them before they fall too far behind, rather than being reactive and trying to catch up them up after the reading gap has widened to a level that makes it extremely difficult for them to catch up."
“Not only does this intervention improve achievement and test scores, but it also reduces the cost of remediation, special education, and grade retention.”
Proudly replicated in 12 states and Washington, D.C. (so far).
