Transformation Network

The Transformation Network is a group of literacy-focused school partnerships organized to create measurable, transformative change in targeted CMS elementary schools.

20,000 K-3 students in Charlotte-Mecklenburg need support in order to be college and career ready by 2025.

Read Charlotte pairs community members and organizations with Charlotte-Mecklenburg schools to benefit students in four critical areas:

Books: 

Building students’ home libraries through Bookapalooza events at school

Empowering Families: 

Building literacy routines at home with Active Reading strategies, Ready4K text messaging, and HomeReadingHelper.org videos & activities

Tutoring: 

Providing high-quality, targeted literacy tutoring to K-3 students: oral comprehension, fluency, (phonics – coming soon!)

Summer Learning: 

Providing opportunities to stop summer learning loss through Go Mobile: Providing literacy resources to pre-existing community centers and programs and Community Pop-ups: providing neighborhood and school groups with literacy resources.
