MISSOULA - Chief Charlo Elementary School students get another year of online reading software, and with all the perks.
Teacher Barbara Higgins says the online reading software is customized for each student's reading level. Not only does it encourage reading fluency, it makes Higgins' job as a teacher much easier, as all the record keeping is done online.
This is her second time receiving the grant and Higgins says it couldn't be a better program, to help her kids excel at reading.
"It's actually motivating for them, just like for any of us. We like to do what we're good at, so you can place them at a level where they're good and then that helps them to get better."
CEO of Allegiance Benefit Plan Management Dirk Visser and KPAX General Manager Bob Hermes presented Higgins with the One Class At A time grant that made the software purchase possible.
