Rapid City Schools Eliminate Reading Recovery Program

Working with a budget crisis, the Rapid City Areas Schools plans to cut the Reading Recovery at the end of this school year. 

According to KOTA Territory News, Reading Recovery is an early literacy intervention program designed to help first graders who have difficulty learning to read and write better.  It was first introduced in the US in 1984, and has been used in the Rapid City schools since 1994. 

Similarlly, Black Hawk Elementary had to cut its Reading Recovery program at the beginning of 2014-15 school year, as reported last year in the Rapid City Journal.
