HOULKA, Miss. (AP) - Houlka Elementary School has 88 new tablets to use in reading lessons.

The Chickasaw Journal (http://bit.ly/1NCUSHk ) reports that the Chickasaw County School District has received $36,900 for the tablets, covers, and charging stations from the Appalachian Regional Commission.

Superintendent Betsy Collums says they’re to be used to help get poor readers up to grade level and to reinforce reading skills.

She says the project’s main goal is to provide a way to help preschool through third-grade teachers prepare students to be proficient readers by the end of third grade. But she says there was enough money to buy tablets for fourth, fifth and sixth grades, too.
