This is the story of the summer literacy adventure between Laurens-Marathon and Prairie Lakes AEA. Five school districts - Eagle Grove, Estherville Lincoln Central, Fort Dodge, Laurens-Marathon and Manson Northwest Webster - agreed to participate in the pilot program with the goal that first graders,  who were struggling readers, would maintain their skills and not fall to the "summer slide." The fall data is just rolling in and all reports indicate this was a success! We will share more results soon!
