The Reading Now Network (RNN) began in 2012/13 by studying high performing schools in West Michigan. The original findings of the qualitative study were cited in the Governor’s report chaired by John C. Kennedy. Since then, MASA Region 3 has separated themselves from the rest of the state in achievement around elementary reading and language arts. However, the early indicators of success are not the real story. The true story is around the collaboration and commitment of a 100 districts across Region 3 committed to improve 3rd grade literacy that has begun to spread to multiple regions. Join our panel of presenters to learn about the five findings, the interactive data tool, stories of collaboration and next steps for educators.
