ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Dougherty County School program aimed at making sure young students don't fall behind is expanding.

The Early Intervention Program is currently set up for students in third through fifth grades. It identifies students having reading and math problems and helps bring them up to speed. Now, it's being expanded students in kindergarten through 2nd grade.  

"Those who have deficits those are the ones that we're trying to catch we want to accelerate their learning provide other strategies for them so that they can be on grade level and be successful," said Deborah Scheer, Elementary ELA Content Coordinator.     

The program will require the district to add about 22 new instructors.
