Grants to South Carolina schools and school districts partnering with community organizations to provide reading support programs to primary school students in underserved communities. Applicants are required to submit an LOI prior to a full grant application. Funding is intended for programs that encourage attendance through student incentives and offer reading materials at a wide range of levels and genres.
The purpose of the Summer Reading Camp (SRC) Community Partnership Grant (CPG) is to provide students who are significantly below grade-level reading proficiency with the opportunity to receive quality, intensive instructional services and support. Camp staff must ensure that students are provided with a wide selection of texts and genres that are written on multiple reading levels in order to best serve the individual needs of students. For students to benefit from the summer program, they must attend regularly and be engaged in instructional and hands-on learning experiences. Sites should strategize ways to increase student attendance on a consistent basis including incentives for attendance and establishing frequent parental contact.
Funds are to provide additional resources to support the South Carolina Read to Succeed Act of 2014 by creating effective partnerships between community organizations and school districts.
For an Effective Summer Reading Camp Partnership Model, see page 3 of the Requests for Proposals document in Supporting Documents, below.
Allowable activities include evidence-based academic and enrichment activities to supplement academic content. Activities associated with all strategies and/or models must demonstrate a direct and/or indirect link to improving students’ reading abilities. Examples of enrichment activities include music, arts, sports, science, team building, community service, and other activities that allow for building positive relationships, character development, and developing leadership skills.
For Allowable Costs, see page 8 of the Requests for Proposals document in Supporting Documents, below.
