Read On San Carlos Apache Tribe

Read On San Carlos LogoRead on San Carlos Apache Tribe is focused on achieving greater awareness of literacy, school attendance, identifying gaps and enabling collaboration across community efforts to include and support early literacy initiatives.

Our vision is to address the challenges in improving reading achievement in the San Carlos Apache Tribe—particularly among our at-risk children—including developing solutions for certain critical areas of focus such as: school readiness, early grade success, family engagement, professional development, chronic absence, and summer learning loss.

Areas of Focus:

  • 100 percent participation in the Reading Challenge from early childhood centers and local schools including the summer Reading Challenge.
  • Increase and support summer retention literacy programs.
  • Increasing general awareness in the community on the importance of early literacy in brain development.
