Kids who are not reading at grade level by fourth grade are four times more likely to drop out of high school, only one in 25 will graduate from college, and one in ten will end up in jail.
Well-off students get ahead and keep moving up!
Disadvantaged students fall behind each summer and get dragged further down each year. Most are a full year behind in reading by the time they reach 4th grade.
When parents read to and with their children, their students’ reading skills improve. Kids Read Now encourages parents to stay engaged in their child’s summer reading, and provides tips and tools to help them boost their child’s reading abilities.
Research shows that district-level programming choices can account for up to 2/3 of student reading gains or losses. Kids Read Now is guaranteed to raise your students’ reading scores at a lower price than any other summer reading program.
Our program combines technology, parent engagement, student choice and school partnerships to help kids succeed as readers. We promise statistically significant improvements in kids reading scores with minimal time and cost commitment.
We have a few seats left in our upcoming webinars! There are 2 sessions – One is to illustrate how Kids Read Now can help your children to reduce the summer slide, and the other is to give information about Title I funds. Sign up today!
