Read On Chandler

read-on-chandlerA Collaborative Literacy Project comprised of community organizations and businesses committed to ensuring that every child, birth through five, obtains the necessary literacy skills for school readiness.


  • Within five years, 70% of students within Chandler’s more vulnerable neighborhoods will enter Kindergarten with their first Pre-K assessment scores as a benchmark.


  • Improving early childhood literacy through the development of a shared vision: the establishment of a City-sponsored literacy goal that all children entering kindergarten are ready to succeed in school.

This will be accomplished through effective leadership and governance, the use of data to align and adapt resources and the establishment of a dedicated structure and staffing.
