The district implemented Ignite! Reading this spring. Erin Stocker, Morrow County School District executive director of human resources, boasts of the program, which offers one-on-one tutoring from Eastern Oregon University students, matching them with students in Morrow County. She said 30 of the district’s students now are in Ignite! and more should be entered into it at the start of the new school year.
Ignite! students study with their tutors for 15 minutes a day, every school day, meeting online. Each session is different as tutoring sessions are tailored to fit each student’s needs.
