Established in 2001, Read2Succeed has supported students on their journey to reading success. We continue to improve the program through feedback from teachers and volunteers. The program serves first and second graders struggling with reading skills.
The Read2Succeed First Grade Vocabulary Enhancement Program focuses on increasing vocabulary and background knowledge for students who are below grade level in vocabulary acquisition. Additional support and instruction may be provided through our program. 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 one day per week.
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 one day per week.
The Foundation provides volunteer recruitment, training, and materials. Both programs are available at no cost to all OCPS district elementary schools – not just Title I schools.
