TRMS named grant recipient

Three Rivers Middle School has been selected as one of four partners in the Promoting Adolescent Reading Model Demonstration Project, a program offered through the Michigan Integrated Behavior and Learning Support Initiative.
Funded through the U.S. Department of Education, the grant focuses on improving reading outcomes for adolescent students, according to Three Rivers superintendent Jean Logan.
The four-year project is funded at $400,000 annually to be shared between the four schools. The project will focus on improving reading proficiency and comprehension for students with disabilities; increasing the fidelity of teachers’ implementation of instructional strategies, practices, and programs components; assuring stakeholder acceptance/partnership satisfaction; and increasing the fidelity and sustainability of systems and practices to support improved reading outcomes.
Learning from this project will be incorporated into the Middle School’s MiBLiSi activities, Logan said.
Nationally, only three programs have been selected for this grant.
