Because reading is the foundation for success in school and life, more than 500 partners are working together to advance early literacy as part of Read On Arizona. This collaborative effort connects communities to evidence-based practices, resources and technical assistance to improve language and literacy outcomes for Arizona’s children from birth to age 8.
If you’re already part of this collaborative effort, or if you’re interested in bringing this work to your Arizona community, join us at the Read On Arizona Literacy Summit, to be held on Tuesday, August 29 at 2:15 p.m. at the Phoenix Convention Center, shortly after the conclusion of the First Things First Early Childhood Summit.
The Literacy Summit will highlight the importance of early literacy, its long-term impact on communities and our state, and the critical steps to making third grade reading proficiency a reality for Arizona’s children.
