Austin Partners in Education
6th Grade Reading Classroom Coaching
Austin Partners in Education (APIE)’s mission is to create and foster effective community and school partnerships that provide all AISD students preparation for college and career. With the Impact Austin grant, the 6th Grade Reading Coaching Program will empower 6th grade students to become stronger, independent readers through Reading Classroom Coaching. Classroom Coaches share a love of reading with students, increasing fluency and comprehension for increased learning outcomes. In a new program, Reading Stars, students will work weekly with their Classroom Coach to perfect their reading and will then have the opportunity to star in their own book-on-tape. This program will impact 500 6th graders at Burnet or Pearce Middle schools that are reading below grade level.
