The Suncoast Campaign for Grade-Level Reading is 18 months old, which prompted us to schedule a Community Update Breakfast on October 20th to look at our efforts thus far, examine our current work, and align our aspirations for the future. Over 200 regional leaders attended.

Here is the video we created to highlight some of the accomplishments from the past 18 months.  We are very proud of our efforts thus far, but we know there is much more work to do. In our region, 40% of all third graders are not reading proficiently by the end of third grade.  Youtube link for Suncoast Campaign for Grade-Level Reading Community Update
