LCPS' Reading Program
    The objective of the reading program is for students to become competent, lifelong readers. Students are taught to develop skills and strategies needed to make sense of what they read. The students progress from learning the basics of alphabet recognition and letter sounds, to decoding words in context and working with spelling patterns, to mastering the complex comprehension skills necessary for understanding difficult content area texts. The reading specialist works with teachers, small groups of students and individual students.
