For Communities

Welcome to FCRR! We are dedicated to ensuring that all children are reading and succeeding in school. Communities play an important role in helping children learn and grow their reading and literacy skills. Community members can deliver programming, provide services, raise funding, and advocate for policies that support children's learning inside and outside of schools. Here, you can find resources to support all children in your community. FCRR invites you to use the resources below to make evidence-based and evidence-informed decisions to improve reading for all learners.
