How AkronReads Helps

IMG_3143_1-2703936750-OLiteracy is the cornerstone of a child’s future success, and research shows that student achievement is closely tied to how well kids can read by the time they reach third grade.

Those who are reading at grade level are more likely to:

  • graduate from high school
  • pursue higher education and employment
  • raise kids who also graduate
  • become engaged in their communities

 This is a pivotal time in a child’s education that will have long-lasting effects throughout the rest of their schooling and beyond.
