WHY LITERACY?
Research shows that reading and writing proficiency is directly linked to student success. Children who do not read proficiently by the end of third grade are four times more likely to leave school without a high school diploma (Early Warning Confirmed: A Research Update on Third-Grade Reading. The Annie E. Casey Foundation, 2013 LINK TO http://www.aecf.org/resources/early-warning-confirmed/). At LEAD, our goal is to empower students by prioritizing literacy and ensuring that all students graduate withthe reading and writing skills needed to be successful throughout their education.
