Mission Statement

The mission of the Oakland Literacy Coalition is to increase the capacity of literacy providers to improve early learning outcomes in order to ensure that all Oakland children are reading at a proficient level by the end of third grade. We fulfill this mission through collaboration, promotion of effective practices, resource development and policy work.

Description

Oakland Reads 2020 (OR2020), an initiative of the Oakland Literacy Coalition, aims to double the percent of Oakland students reading successfully by the end of third grade. We envision an Oakland where at least 85 percent of our students are reading at grade level by the end of third grade in 2020 -- a critical indicator of future success. We are mobilizing the community to build a commitment and take action around four key pillars of reading success: Kindergarten Readiness, School Attendance / Chronic Absence, Summer Learning, and Family Engagement. We are leveraging partnerships to create community driven solutions and results.
