A PARTNERSHIP WITH
is a campaign aligning community organizations and schools with a common mission: to bring all students to grade level reading by the end of 3rd grade.
How IS COMMUNITY ENGAGeMENT THE KEY TO STUDENT SUCCESS?
Through the Read Memphis Project Literacy Mid-South is working collaboratively with other education-focused organizations to create new or improve existing opportunities to engage in high-quality literacy interventions throughout the Mid-South.
Literacy Mid-South's out-of-school time support is a city-wide initiative focused on grade-level reading by the end of third grade. As convener of the LMS Out-of-School Time Network, Literacy Mid-South is working on a number of fronts across Shelby County to support nonprofit partners with existing out-of-school programming to provide high quality literacy interventions to elementary students.
Research on more than 21,000 students in districts across the country shows that by the end of 3rd grade, students' Growth Rates (what's happening in school) accounts for 60% of their reading ability.
Community Impact (what's happening outside of school) accounts for 38%!
The combined effort of schools and communities accounts for a total of 98% of students' success - so only when these efforts are aligned can we maximize students' literacy outcomes.

OUR PARTNERSHIP IN THE NEWS
Use of these Learning Ovations tools for home, after school programs; preK, summer programs and tutoring in combination with community partnerships, will create the framework for establishing a solution that will improve reading outcomes for ALL students.
Further, this also allows existing community-based literacy organizations to form the core infrastructure that can then be used to coordinate work and leverage funding across entire communities and in partnership with the school district. Finally, these Learning Ovations tools can also serve to strengthen the communication and engagement between educational institutions (districts or schools) and community groups.
