The Morning Read program at Bakersfield City SD is a guided reading program designed to give one-on-one support to struggling, below grade level and/or English learner students in grades K-2, by giving them the opportunity to read orally to an adult or sixth-grade peer for a minimum of 20 minutes daily. This program is led by classroom teachers and relies on parents and/or relatives, community members and sixth-grade peer support.
