The Zeeland Education Foundation is excited to partner with Zeeland Public Schools to support the district wide goal of literacy. We presented a check to ZPS for $50,000 to support the Phonics First program.
This program is an Orton-Gillingham nationally accredited course used to teach literacy. It is a multi-sensory approach that is effective for all students, but especially those who might be experiencing some reading challenges. ZPS has implemented Phonics First in all K-2nd grade classrooms this school year and teachers spend 20-25 minutes per day teaching this new effective program.
We look forward to supporting ZPS more in the future by making quality public education a lifetime gift!
