Abstract
The educational systems, commissioned by the Constitution, shall reach out to nearby communities by participatingin local and national societies' civic programs. The Angeles University Foundation-College of Education (AUF-CED), a Center of Excellence (COE)-recognizedinstitution, realizes that literacy education should be delivered and integrated through community extension to enhance personnel's capacity building by extendingexpertise to the partner community. In effect, using Qualitative Reading Inventory (QRI-5) by Leslie and Caldwell (2011), this study described the best practices of AUF-CED's remedial reading program implementing procedure and evaluated its impact among267 pupil-respondents' reading performance categorized under frustration level as indicated by difficulty in decoding, word recognition, miscues, slow reading speed, and poor comprehension. Findings revealed the program'sfavorable impact onparticipants' reading performance as evidenced by the significant differences in the pretest and posttest results. Lack of significant difference in the miscues committed and the reading speed could be attributed to program's short span and tutees' absenteeism. Recommendations include project's sustainability and improvement and provision of well-planned and implemented trainings to have greater impact on the clienteles and the community.
