Read! Reading Success by 4th Grade is a community initiative with the goal of ALL of Springfield’s children reading proficiently by the end of 3rd grade.
Our early literacy plan, and the broad community coalition it represents – our families, our schools and our community partners – was recognized by the National Civic League of 2012, naming Springfield an All-America City.
We are now implementing the plan, aligning our efforts in homes, schools, early learning programs and community places where children learn, play and worship so that they develop the critical oral language and reading skills for their academic and life success.
Springfield, Massachusetts is putting early literacy at the center of its community agenda. We are proud to be one of many communities across the country who are part of the Campaign for Grade Level Reading.
