In 2014, Broward County joined the national Campaign for Grade-Level Reading (CGLR) to increase the number of children reading at grade level by the time they complete grade 3.  The Children’s Services Council of Broward County convened community partners with leadership and support from the Broward County Commission, Broward County Public Schools, Broward County Library System, Early Learning Coalition, United Way, Family Central, Jim Moran Foundation, A.D. Henderson Foundation, Community Foundation of Broward and others to form the Broward Reads Coalition – Campaign for Grade Level Reading (Broward Reads), now a formal component of the Broward County Children’s Strategic Plan. 

Next Broward Reads Coalition Meeting:
March 22nd, 2018 @ 9:30 A.M.
6600 W. Commercial Blvd., Lauderhill, FL 33319

Upcoming Event:
On October 19th, we will once again "Read for the Record"!  This is a national Jumpstart event powered locally by the Children's Services Council and our many community partners.  Please join us as we read the adorable book "Quackers" to 40,000 preschoolers and kindergartners!  For information on how to become a reader, please visit Hands on Broward's website by clicking here.
