A New Direction for GLR: Moving Forward in the Work
The Baltimore Campaign for Grade Level Reading (GLR), an initiative of the Fund’s focused on engaging families in their child’s literacy development, is moving in a new direction. After much discussion and reflection, the Fund is transitioning GLR to expand and reimagine the work to focus on family engagement for all grade bands and academic areas. We will build on all we learned in GLR to focus even more intentionally on family engagement as an academic strategy, an area of work that we believe is high priority, high impact, and underdeveloped. This new chapter does not mean that we have closed the door to making sure that all students in Baltimore are reading on grade level, but our commitment and scope of work is broadening to support more City Schools students and their families.
