Who We Are

Who We Are

The Arkansas Campaign for Grade-Level Reading (AR-GLR) was launched in 2011 to move the needle on education outcomes in Arkansas by focusing on third-grade reading proficiency. AR-GLR and its partners have been recognized nationally as an effective model to enhance early literacy outcomes. AR-GLR is a collaborative effort that includes over 30 organizations that believe the only way to make measurable progress on grade-level reading is to work collectively with families, educators, policymakers, and business leaders around the state.

AR-GLR is managed in partnership with Arkansas Advocates for Children and Families, Arkansas Community Foundation, and the Winthrop Rockefeller Foundation. AR-GLR is part of the national Campaign for Grade-Level Reading that includes over 360 communities in 43 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Canada.
