Read On Phoenix

Read On PhoenixIn 2010, the State of Arizona passed a third grade reading retention law. “Move on When Reading” requires third grade students to read at grade level prior to being promoted to the fourth grade.

To support schools, teachers, parents and children, the City of Phoenix is targeting literacy resources to the highest need communities so that every child is reading on grade level by the end of third grade.

Read On Phoenix will engage parents, businesses and the community by addressing four key areas:

  • School readiness
  • Summer learning loss
  • Afterschool literacy enrichment
  • Volunteerism

Arizona is battling a literacy crisis.

Our goal is simple: every third-grader in our city will read proficiently.

Here’s how you can help!

  • Explore these resources to assure that your kids are learning to read and reading to learn.
  • Give your time to support our schools.
  • Share this important message with family, friends and neighbors.

Together, we can win this battle.
