Welcome to the Erie County Detention Center
Literacy Center Web Page
The Reading Program at the Erie County Youth Detention Center has been designed based on the underlying principles that children are not retaining essential aspects of reading instruction in early grades and are unable to meet academic standards. As this "Matthew Effect" develops, the literacy gap expands causing students to fall further behind and therefore becoming "at-risk". In order to help bridge that gap, students need opportunities to increase literacy skills and receive support in academic instruction.
