We can improve early literacy in Charlotte-Mecklenburg, together. You are a piece of the puzzle for thousands of children in our community.

Commit to 80, with us.

Working together, we believe our community can increase the percentage of children who finish third grade at College and Career Ready on the state reading assessment from 25% in spring 2022 to 80% by spring 2030. About 2,700 CMS third graders (25%) in spring 2022 met CCR on the EOG. We need to increase up to about 5,900 more annually to be on-level to reach our 2030 target of 80%.

We can all play a part in reaching this goal, together.
