When Kids Achieve, We Succeed
At each site, children were urged to achieve, maintain, and even enhance key reading skills

A full 75% of children improved their reading skills over the course of the summer, according to the test scores, and 14% of students maintained their reading skills.
In total, 89% of students maintained or increased reading test scores in 2019.
