Educator Information for Read2Succeed Program

Established in 2001, Read2Succeed has supported students on their journey to reading success. We continue to improve the program each year through feedback from teachers and volunteers. The program serves first- and second-graders who are developing their reading skills. Students who are just below grade level in vocabulary and fluency receive extra support from a caring volunteer.
The Read2Succeed First-Grade Vocabulary Enhancement Program focuses on increasing vocabulary and background knowledge for students who are below grade level in vocabulary acquisition. Utilizing volunteers and a district approved curriculum; Read2Succeed supplements what students are being taught in the classroom. Volunteers tutor one-on-one for 30 minutes two days per week for 26 sessions. Students receive books to build a home library.

The Read2Succeed Second-Grade Fluency Program utilizes The Six-Minute Solution, a research-based program that quickly builds fluency through interactive, repeated readings of high-interest, targeted readability passages. This curriculum provides students with improved fluency and comprehension skills. Volunteers tutor a pair of students for 40 minutes two days per week for 26 sessions.

The Read2Succeed program provides volunteer recruitment, training, and materials. Both programs are available at no cost to participating OCPS district elementary schools – not just Title I schools.
