Who We Serve We serve students in grades 1-12 who are from low-income families and are struggling with literacy skills. Participants are referred to the program by family members, guardians, teachers, counselors or learning disability specialists. The two eligibility requirements for Augustine tutoring are: 1) low-income, qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch, and 2) below grade level performance in reading, writing or spelling. We do not require that our students meet the discrepancy criteria used by the state of North Carolina to determine eligibility for LD services in the public schools (a 15 point difference between ability and achievement scores obtained through a psycho-educational testing battery).
Augustine tutors are currently tutoring students at Rosman Elementary, TC Henderson Elementary, Brevard Elementary, Pisgah Elementary and Brevard Academy.
The Augustine Literacy Project director will maintain a waiting list of eligible students. If you would like to recommend a student for services, please email Wendi Adair at firstname.lastname@example.org.
