Every Child Reads

Building on our past work in Arizona -- including chronic absenteeism, kindergarten enrollment, and literacy-- the next phase is Every Child Reads (ECR). This is a research-based family engagement program that empowers parents with the skills and knowledge they need to support their child's learning and prepare them to succeed after graduation.

Through our Every Child Reads program, Stand for Children focuses on collaboratively working with school districts to:

  • Educate and encourage parents to enroll their children in high-quality, full-day kindergarten programs.
  • Share critical information with parents about high-quality ELL alternative models, their rights, and how they can provide support.
  • Reduce chronic absenteeism rates because if kids aren’t in school, they aren’t learning.
  • Improve literacy through Every Child Reads at Home, a simple and effective family reading program. 

If you're a school district who wants to partner, please contact Luis Acosta at lacosta@stand.org.
