The Challenge

Reading proficiency by third grade is the most important predictor of high school graduation and career success. Yet every year, more than 80 percent of low-income children nationwide miss this crucial milestone.

The goal of Tahoe Truckee Reads is to ensure that all children in our community are reading proficiently by the end of third grade. We want our children to have the tools they need to be successful in life.
