MERIT / FACS
In grades 3 through 5, MERIT features an opportunity for students to receive assistance in the area of reading. FACS (Fluency and Comprehension Skills) is a small reading class setting offered to students who are struggling with reading processes within the classroom. FACS teacher, Krista Sharpe states, “The goal of the program is to assist students in becoming proficient readers who have a comprehensive understanding of what they read in all subject areas.”
Low student/teacher ratios help with individualizing instruction for each student based on their needs with a 7:1 ratio in FACS.
