Bentley Academy Innovation School recently received a grant of almost $300,000 for all things literacy!

There is an amazing team of educators working on spending this money to ensure all BAIS students become phenomenal readers. This funding will support restructuring our library to be more inclusive — it will include the newest titles that reflect the cultural and linguistic diversity of our students and families. It also includes:

  • Brand new books in English, Spanish and 7 other home languages spoken by our students
  • Comfy reading nooks in the library
  • Bilingual library paraprofessional to organize and maintain the library
  • Monthly family literacy events & take-home books for students
  • Bilingual (Spanish-English) Book Room full of high-interest, leveled texts for reading instruction

We are so excited to have improved resources for our students & teachers!
