Students at Tempe’s Hudson Elementary have completed their first year in the SRP Tutor program. At Hudson, 17 tutors met weekly with 26 students to work on reading, with some assistance in math and spelling.
Growth was tremendous, according to Janice Ewbank, the school’s instructional coach. By the end of the school year last week, all of the third-graders participating met end-of-year benchmark goals in reading. Many of the fourth-graders reached this goal as well. Every student demonstrated significant growth in reading fluency.
This is the seventh year SRP has connected employees and students through tutoring in Valley schools.
