HOLLISTON, MASSACHUSETTS – For nearly as long as there have been standardized tests, educators have noticed a disturbing fact: Low-income students’ test scores are far lower on average than middle and higher-income students.
The Peter and Elizabeth C. Tower Foundation has awarded the Bay State Reading Institute (BSRI) a three-year, $90,000 grant to fund staff coaching and professional development at BSRI’s ten partner schools in Beverly and Gloucester.
The Bay State Reading Institute (BSRI) announced today that the Adams-Cheshire Regional District (ACRSD) will become its tenth Partner District in Massachusetts. BSRI will work with the Plunkett Elementary School in Adams and the Cheshire Elementary School in Cheshire beginning in September.
REVERE, MASSACHUSETTS – The Bay State Reading Institute (BSRI) today released good news about its partner schools in Everett, Malden and Revere – three Massachusetts Gateway Cities.
The funds will enable BSRI to expand the program to 6,800 students in 12 high-need, low-performing schools in Brockton, Fitchburg, Gloucester, Malden, Pittsfield, Taunton, and Revere.
