Parents can help kids build literacy skills, program says

Published: Tuesday, March 5, 2013 at 06:52 PM.

The workshop was supported by Title 1 funding, a federal source for schools to provide assistance to help students achieve academic success. Walker is one of 14 Okaloosa County elementary schools that receive Title 1 funding.

"We wouldn't have been successful without the help of the kindergarten through second-grade teachers, Title 1 classroom assistance and Principal Kirkland," Rodgers said.

Rodgers said she hopes the school will participate in the program again, but “it really depends on funding for next year.”
