Read to Succeed Reading Academy Opens Even More Doors

Southeast’s Read to Succeed Plus (R2S+) Reading Academy has expanded its outreach to elementary students in the Sikeston, Kennett, and Poplar Bluff communities.

Under the auspices of Southeast’s Department of Elementary, Early and Special Education, the Academy provides struggling readers in grades 1-5 an environment to take risks and build confidence as they develop literary skills to become proficient readers. While the program is only offered during the fall semester, now is a good time for parents to learn about the program and begin making plans for their child for the next school year.

“We are excited to expand our services and offer more help to students,” said Dr. Debra Porter, associate professor and coordinator of Southeast’s R2S+ program.
