Campaign for Grade-Level Reading

Durham’s Campaign for Grade-Level Reading

Durham’s Campaign for Grade-Level Reading is a collaborative effort which the Partnership has co-led with Book Harvest. Part of the National Campaign for Grade-Level Reading (CGLR), this work is built upon the three pillars of school readiness, summer learning, and school attendance. This collaborative made big strides in its first year:

  • A Community Solutions Action Plan was submitted, paving the way for Durham to join the national CGLR.
  • Durham’s Campaign partners attended the national CGLR conference and joined a regional Triangle learning community.
  • Durham’s Campaign hosted a variety of events to celebrate National Summer Learning Day.

Durham’s Campaign is founded on a strong belief in the important role of parents in achieving success for their children and is committed to engaging with families, schools, and community members to ensure better outcomes for Durham’s children. Ultimately, we hope to increase the percentage of 3rd graders in Durham reading proficiently from 45.7% to 70% by 2025.
