Wabasha-Kellogg Elementary i.t.a. Program
Helping children read!
The school campus is just outside of Wabasha and serves students from the surrounding area. Wabasha-Kellogg School District serves approximately 300 students at the Elementary Level (PreK-6) and 280 students at the Secondary Level (7-12).
School Year ITA Program
Struggling readers in grades 2-6 are served in the Wabasha-Kellogg ITA program. With a grant from the ITA Foundation, we have two goals: (1) build and strengthen the ITA Program by increasing the number of students served; and (2) expand the program to include a 9th grade English course that uses ITA to remediate reading deficits in older students.
