Kids Read Now keeps parents engaged throughout the program with weekly outreach and tools to build family literacy.

 

Throughout our work with numerous districts, we’ve learned that one of the most difficult aspects of implementing a successful summer reading program is involving parents.

 

Parental involvement is absolutely key in implementing a successful program. Our focus on this area results in significant and substantial improvements in reading scores. 94% of parents say they would recommend the program.

Our Parent Guide helps you to stay involved.

 

We invite all parents to a Family Reading Night, where they receive a Parent Guide containing everything they need to know about Kids Read Now and summer reading. We also call, text, or email every parent each week to check in and keep them involved in their student’s reading progress.
