Ignite! Summer Reading Program is a brand new reading program aimed at kindergarten to second-grade students from low-income families, or who attend Title I schools in Oakland. Students in the program are paired with individual tutors to help them improve their reading skills. Tutoring sessions will be 30 minutes a day, five days a week, from June 7 to August 6. Applications are available in English and Spanish, and families will be accepted on a rolling basis.
