Reading into Success - Campaign for Grade Level Reading

These partner organizations support children in ways that best fit their own missions and purposes through five focus areas:

  • School Readiness
  • Attendance
  • Summer Learning
  • Hope & Well-Being
  • Every Day Reading

As a team, we form a network of supports around schools to ensure children begin school ready to learn and continue along that path as they learn to read in early grades. Our goal is to create a foundation for success, improve high school graduation rates, and prepare students to become successful adults.
