Read On Communities

Read On Roosevelt

Read On RooseveltRead On Roosevelt is a collaborative effort facilitated by Valley of the Sun United to identify gaps and enable collaboration across community efforts focused on early literacy to help support the community. While supporting the full continuum to include School Readiness, Chronic Absenteeism, and Summer Learning, Read On Roosevelt is working with a cross section of community leaders to identify the areas of concern and develop solutions to address the issues.

Focus Areas:

  • The Read On Roosevelt Community Workgroup has convened reviewing a completed literacy scan and district data. The data will inform next steps and determine specific strategies to ensure every child is reading at grade level by third grade. These efforts will support the entire community.
