Northfield Reads and Counts

About Northfield Reads and Counts

Northfield Reads and Counts is a local implementation of two national educational initiatives (America Reads and America Counts) seeking to involve community members in helping children develop critical reading and mathematics skills.

Northfield Reads & Counts works to connect the expertise, energy and resources of Carleton and St. Olaf College students with Northfield Public Schools students who need extra support and assistance to be successful in the classroom. Tutors provide homework help and build relationships with students.

Students eligible for Federal Work-Study qualify to earn a portion of their work award through work as a Northfield Reads and Counts Tutor. Tutors are expected to commit to a weekly tutoring schedule at one or more of the Northfield Public Schools. Tutors can work in classrooms with individuals or with small groups, in study halls, or in after-school programs providing one-on-one homework help. Tutors work with students in grades kindergarten through 8th grade. For more information, see the tutor position description below.
