Borderline students are always the students who seem to go unnoticed in the classroom. The students' reading levels are not high enough to function at grade level and not low enough to get the extra assistance from the Reading Specialist in the assigned building. Often the students are given just enough reading material to keep them busy.

A reading enrichment program, developed through the use of learning packets and supplemental books, is designed to help alleviate some of the problems these students experience in reading. The learning packet materials were selected to encourage students to appreciate books, learn to read for pleasure, as well as to eliminate some of their reading difficulties.
