Proven Results

As a data-driven organization, one of our main goals is to figure out how well our program works. 

 

Each year, an independent third-party data firm analyzes the spring-to-fall reading scores for students who participated in Kids Read Now versus those who did not.  For the past two years, we have found that children who participate in the program achieve more than those who do not. The effects are cumulative; those who participate for multiple years do better than first-year students.  Below are the results from some of the districts we serve.

Thank you for your donations!

Students at Troy City Schools, a fourth-year district, have seen substantial positive results from participating in Kids Read Now.  In 2015, Troy third graders eligible for free/reduced lunch who read 7-9 books gained an incredible 44 points from spring to fall reading assessments versus those who read no books, while other cohorts gained between 14 and 19 points.  Second-year students, on average, gained nearly 7 points relative to first-year students.
