  4. 4. Project Reading Achievement through Listening AbstractThe mission of Harlandale Independent School District is “a family working together to providea high quality education where all students graduate to become productive and successfulcitizens for the 21st century.” The acquisition of essential literacy skills is a primary componentto success in school and in life. There are students at Stonewall Flanders Elementary who arestruggling in the area of reading comprehension and are in danger of not reaching their highestpotential. My Project Reading Achievement through Listening program will help teachers,parents, and staff, meet the literacy needs and maximize opportunities for parents to assist theirchildren in acquiring success in reading.This proposal will help students raise reading achievement scores and further develop a love forreading by incorporating the use of audio books for students to independently use. Through thisproposal teachers will receive the necessary training to assist in the implementation of readingacquisition through the sharpening of listening comprehension skills. The librarian and readinginterventionist will discuss how parents can assist the literacy skills of their children with parentsin a welcoming and inviting atmosphere. Students will participate in fun activities andcelebrations centered around literacy and their own achievements.The total cost of this program is $6,200.00. Of this amount, $.1,200.00 has been funded by ourlocal library budget. Administration and Harlandale Independent School District has funded thetraining and transportation cost of $2,500.00. Prizes, party supplies, and print materials torecognize student achievement and advertise books in audio format, costing $500.00 are fundedthrough the book fair fundraisers and the PTA. A total of $1,800.00 is requested for theimplementation of this program. It is my hope that through this program we can continue tomeet the literacy needs of our students and encourage LCFF to contact Collette Knight, Reading
