DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Dayton Public Schools are working alongside Wright State University and Project READ to train reading volunteers.

The district is holding a training session Saturday morning, February 8, for volunteers who will sit with students and help them improve their reading skills.

The training session will be held at downtown Dayton YWCA at 141 West Third Street from 10:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m.

Project Read and Wright State will cover fluency, phonics and comprehension.

The training session will also cover the importance of school-community partnerships.

Organizers hope to have 100 volunteers ready to work with students.  They hope for a big turnout Saturday morning that will reach that goal.
