Additional education assistance is provided to students in
the Decatur City School System via the Reading Recovery Program.
This is a research-based program that is implemented with the
lowest performing first grade students in Title I schools. Students
are serviced intensely for 30 minutes a day for up to 22 weeks.
Children are exited when one reaches the average performance level
of his/her class. This teacher services seven individual students
and spends the remainder of his/her instructional time with second
graders who were served the previous year through Reading Recovery.
