July 2013 Newsle..

Dear Baltimore Grade Level Reading Coalition members:

Thank you to all those that attended yesterday’s Baltimore Campaign for Grade Level Reading Coalition Meeting. It’s encouraging to see so many disparate stakeholders come together around a common goal and vision!

I want to thank our special guests, Ralph Smith, Director of the National GLR Campaign and Principal Roxanne Forr from Cecil Elementary, for giving us perspective on what is working both across the country and, here in Baltimore.

For those of you that were not able to attend, below is information about a revised Baltimore GLR Campaign framework that was created based on the coalition feedback and introduced at yesterday’s meeting.

In addition, I have included reactions to the framework from the coalition which will be brought back to the project management team, work groups, and steering committee. Click here to read the full July Newsletter. As always, your feedback is appreciated. Thank you for your partnership.
