    USU Pilot Program Helping Kindergarteners Reading in Logan

    Administration and leadership from the Logan City School District and Utah State University met to discuss the success of a pilot partnership program between LCSD and USU’s Center for the School of the Future on Tuesday.

    The partnership has multiple sections, including the Teacher Academy program which allows USU student teachers to work in elementary schools in the district and a reading proficiency program.

    Since the start of the reading proficiency program, LCSD has reported a 96 percent reading proficiency in their kindergarten classes. Jed Grunig, director of elementary schools for LCSD, said while the kindergarten levels were the most dramatic, all grade levels have increased their reading proficiency rates.
