MISSOULA- Some new reading software for Chief Charlo School is sure to send kids on their "reading way".
Allegiance Benefit Plan Management CEO, Dirk Visser and Montana's News Station General Manger Bob Hermes presented Barbara Higgins with a $250 One Class At A Time check.
The Resource teacher says it's vital for all of her students to read to the best of their ability, so they can apply themselves in other subjects in school as well.
Higgins say the new web based software will keep track of the students progress and allow students to work from home. She says the software will also help her students read more fluently.
"There's a lot of kids that if their comprehension is good but if they can't read fluently enough, it's hard for them. It's harder for them to keep up. So, the fluency is a real important component of their academic success," she explained.
