The Kansas Reading Roadmap aligns afterschool with school instruction to increase literacy outcomes, demonstrating its power to close the achievement gap between the lowest performing children and those bound for academic success.

In-School

KRR is implemented during school through the Kansas Multi-Tiered Systems of Supports (MTSS). This approach helps to identify why a student is struggling in reading, and allows teachers to provide instruction to best meet each student’s individual need.

After-School

In literacy sessions, students improve their reading skills through stories, songs, poems and reading activities in a fun learning environment. Children also receive a healthy snack and stay active in the Healthy Kids session.

LIFE

(Literacy Integrated Family Engagement) During this eight-session program, families enjoy a meal together and spend time with their children talking, reading, and playing games. LIFE team members supervise children during a portion of each night, allowing time to for parents to talk and share with other families. Many families develop friendships during LIFE which last long after the program ends.

Summer

While still maintaining a strong literacy focus, students also gain skills in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The four-week summer camp environment gives students the opportunity to learn and gain new friends with team building, community service, fun days, and field trips.
