Compton USD K-2 Literacy Initiative answers the call of literacy advancement with an innovative partnership and program design. California State University, Dominguez Hills, has recruited hundreds of college students, many of whom are Compton USD graduates, to participate in the program. The district provides them with the necessary professional development and assigns them to school sites as tutors. This program has increased reading proficiency, improved student behavior, and enhanced interest in learning.
