Broward Reads: The Campaign For Grade-Level Reading
read for the record
Share this post
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.
Broward: Read for the Record Day is on October 26th, 2023.
This year, we are SHARING THE LOVE and reading With Lots of Love by Jenny Torres Sanchez, illustrated by André Ceolin. Join over 2 million readers and thousands of classrooms, libraries, and communities coming together to celebrate early literacy.
Part of the national Jumpstart’s Read for the Record® campaign, this event mobilizes millions of children and adults to celebrate literacy by participating in the largest shared reading experience. Keep checking here and at HandsOnBroward.org for more information about the event and opportunities to participate! Visit the Broward: Read for the Record 2023 page! We are proud to announce that the Campaign for Grade-Level Reading has awarded the CSC Pacesetter Honors in the categories of Improving Instruction and Strengthening Support Services!
