RE: READ TO SUCCEED! PROJECT
The Orchard Middle School in Orchard, Vermont is seeking a grant to provide help at risk students improve their reading skills.

Orchard Middle School has 276 students.

Students will be able to see their text books and classroom materials on-screen with words and text highlighted, as it is read to them in a human-like voice.
