Read Charlotte is a community children’s reading initiative that unites families, educators and community partners to improve children’s literacy from birth to third grade.
Learning to read is the most important work of students in elementary school. Working together we will double the percentage of third graders in Charlotte-Mecklenburg reading on grade level to 80% by 2025.
Read Charlotte and the Helps Education Fund released results of a new tutoring initiative that launched in 10 Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools elementary schools in 2018-19, which revealed staggering proof that the reading achievement gap in Mecklenburg County can be closed.
Reading over the summer is incredibly important for our kids. In fact, students who don’t keep reading over the summer can fall one or more months behind, while their classmates who continue reading move further ahead. Help your children stay on track while fostering a love of reading that will serve them well throughout their lives.
