Turn the Page STL
Turn the Page STL is St. Louis’ Chapter of the National Campaign for Grade Level Reading with the goal of mobilizing our community collectively so that St. Louis is a community with no disparities in literacy, based on race or zip code. All children are able to read proficiently by the end-of third grade, contributing to their long-term academic outcomes and personal well-being. We measure the progress of our work based on our Collective Impact Strategic Plan, which outlines 5 focus areas to align and provide resources, including kindergarten readiness, summer learning, teacher preparedness, family engagement, and community awareness. Our work is viewed through a racial equity lens with the understanding that racial inequity in metropolitan St. Louis’ public education system has contributed to generations of under literate citizens.
