TONTOGANY - Otsego Local Schools has received a $145,000 reading intervention grant to assist this summer with the Ohio Third Grade Reading Guarantee program.

"Summer programs are extremely important," said Superintendent Adam Koch.

The money will allow the district to purchase reading materials and technology equipment that will stay at locations in each of the four villages in the district to help with the summer reading intervention program.

"We really wanted to utilize each of the communities to allow students to travel to the facilities easier. They can walk to those facilities, and hopefully that will increase our numbers and our participation," Koch explained.

The summer reading intervention activities will take place in at the Village of Haskins facilities on Mondays, at Otsego Elementary on Tuesdays, at the Willow Early Childhood Center, Grand Rapids, on Wednesdays, and at the Weston Public Library on Thursdays.

Such programs allow students to receive more individualized instruction, said Koch, "which can increase the potential of their learning and retention."
