Read On Avondale

Read On AvondaleRead On Avondale 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, the Avondale Community Workgroup 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 Community Workgroup has convened over several months leading to a completed Literacy Scan. 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.
