On the Road to Reading

By  | 

The Lansing School District introduces a new reading initiative for its schools, and school officials hope this program leads to more family involvement.

The door-to-door reading program brings reading specialists to the homes of kindergarteners. They will drop off free books and spend time offering advice and answering parent questions.

School officials hope this will lead to more family involvement. It's one factor schools are now judged on and it can affect a school's overall grade on its report card.

Administrators say it seems like everyone is stepping a notch to reach more parents and bring them into the school environment.
