3-county consortium wins reading instruction grant

September 20, 1998

Howard, Carroll and Frederick counties, working as a consortium, will receive $228,000 in federal funds to train 135 teachers in a pilot project centered primarily on reading instruction for high school students.

The program will allow teachers to work with their own students and schools to identify problems older students experience in reading in all subjects. Teachers will then try to find solutions and use them in class.

The funding is part of $567,000 in federal Goals 2000 money that the Maryland State Department of Education awarded recently.
