Summer Literacy Coach

The initiative will have two tiers of support: 1) all students will benefit from a literacy rich camp environment and a designated literacy block; and 2) some students will receive targeted small group literacy instruction. The Ferguson Library is a key partner in this initiative proving resources and support to the literacy coordinator and coaches.
The coaches will spend 15-20 hours/week over ~6 weeks in 3-4 Stamford based camps.
