FCRR 20th Anniversary

In 2022, the Florida Center for Reading Research (FCRR) celebrates its 20th anniversary. Since its inception in 2002, FCRR has sought to advance reading through science by conducting world-class research alongside our diverse partners and stakeholders across the globe. Over the past 20 years, we’ve built and strengthened relationships, fostered new generations of scholars and leaders, and engaged with educators to improve student outcomes in Florida and beyond.

To commemorate this exciting occasion, FCRR will be releasing new resources, holding a series of informative events, and engaging with our many stakeholders in new and exciting ways under the banner of 'Connected Through Reading.' We’ve designed this space as a platform for our 20th anniversary news and announcements and encourage you to visit often as our resources grow. We hope you will join us in celebration and continue with us on our journey to improve learning and achievement from birth through adulthood.
