Beyond The Horizon

Coastal Outreach Soccer also seeks to improve the academic performance and literacy skills of its participants by assisting them in the development of grade level appropriate reading fluency and comprehension. As reported by the Georgia Department of Education in 2010, Burroughs Molette and Goodyear's third to fifth graders show a steady decline in the percentage of students at above proficiency levels in ELA, Math, Reading, Science, and Social Studies as compared to the school district averages. In some areas, the gap is as great as 42%. In an effort to reduce this gap, COS Beyond the Horizon literacy program participants will read 24 AR books per year and complete AR assessments administrated by the Glynn County School system. Additionally, COS will maintain reading logs and copies of monthly assessment printouts of AR scores and grade level reading progress of each participant. Each participant who maintains a B average and reads 24 AR books will be recognized as an Academic All American during COS annual soccer awards night held in June.
