MISSION: LET’S READ 20 is dedicated to building a Community of readers by encouraging everyone to read to a child for at least 20 minutes each day from birth through elementary school.
VISION: Raising readers who achieve and succeed for an entire lifetime!
Marion’s reading initiative is working to change the culture and value of education and reading within Marion
County over the next three to five years. In doing so, we hope to significantly increase kindergarten readiness outcomes, increase 3rd grade reading achievement scores, enhance dropout prevention, and increase high school graduation rates.
