SREB offering trainings on literacy, math courses for struggling students


The Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) has developed two sets of courses designed to increase student preparedness in literacy and mathematics, and training on both will be offered this summer.

The Ready for High School courses are designed for struggling students as they enter high school, and include Ready for High School Literacy and Ready for High School Math. They can be taught in the 8th or 9th grade.

The Ready for College courses, Literacy Ready and Math Ready, are intended to help underprepared students in their senior year get ready for the rigors of college before they graduate from high school.

These courses, which have been implemented in high schools across the nation, are available as a free download from the SREB website.

The Ready for High School trainings will be June 19-21 at Frankfort High School, and the Ready for College trainings will be July 17-19 at Kentucky Educational Development Corporation and NorthEast Christian Church in Lexington. These trainings are targeted to teachers and curriculum coaches from schools that wish to implement the courses during the 2018-19 school year.
