aac2017

Fifteen communities across the country were honored in June with the 2017 All-America City Award (AAC) for their civic engagement to help more young children from low-income families achieve grade-level reading proficiency and early school success. Research has long shown that when children read at proficient levels by third grade they are more likely to complete high school prepared for college, a career, and active citizenship. Our July Webinar will provide a deeper dive on strategies and initiatives for 2017 winners that aim to close the achievement gap and engage the broader community on helping all children succeed.
