With fears over the potential spread of COVID-19, thousands of schools across Texas are closed.

A new program, however, is helping young students learn to read online.

The Garcia Center for Arts and Education has launched a virtual literacy program on Facebook.

Tutors from Texas A&M-Corpus Christi take turns hosting reading sessions which are divided by age and reading levels from Pre-K to fifth grade.

The group said the program will continue for as long as students are out of school.
