Reading Partners Tulsa is in need of hundreds of volunteers to help improve student’s reading skills this school year.

The organization gives 1-on-1 literacy instruction at Tulsa and Union Public Schools using a volunteer tutor one hour a week.

“This last year we hit 84 percent of students reaching their growth goals for literacy. So that’s incredible. That means most of the students in the program reached the goal they needed to go and be successful in the next grade.”

One of the factors that could impact further action at Tulsa Public Schools is the district’s reading scores. In Tulsa, the goal is to serve 1,000 students and more than 1,200 volunteers are needed. Right now, they only have about 400.
