Each year, we release a report to share the progress made toward the Campaign’s goals, detailing accountability milestones used to track our key impact areas. We are excited to release Full Speed Ahead: 2018 Progress Report on Grade-Level Reading in Arkansas.
In 2012, the Arkansas Campaign for Grade-Level Reading launched with the mission to ensure all children in Arkansas read on grade-level by the end of third grade. Through a network of more than 30 organizations from around the state, representing parents, educators, early childhood education, state agencies and foundations, the campaign has worked collectively to move the needle on third grade reading.
In partnership with AR-GLR, Arkansas Community Foundation awarded $163,550 to seven summer learning programs for their Summer Learning Initiative.
