Reading Improvement Grants.
Idaho State Dept. of Education, Boise.
This report on Idaho's grant programs for reading improvement pinpoints two programs, the General Reading Improvement Program and the Reading Improvement with Phonics Program. The report states that the first program makes funds available to support kindergarten through sixth grade "reading recovery" or other locally developed methods which increase reading skills for students. The report explains that the second program uses its funds to support phonics and skills-based inservice instruction as critical components of reading instruction as well as sustained, long-term staff development; several examples of possible uses are provided. The report then presents background information about the reading improvement programs passage through the Idaho State Legislature and funding and grant expenditures. It concludes with a graph representing ITBS reading scores reinforcing program accountability. (NKA)
