Background Discussion

This Proclamation was requested by Erika Kelly, Suncoast Campaign for Grade-Level Reading.

The Suncoast Campaign for Grade-Level Reading is a communitywide effort in Manatee and Sarasota counties to help all children, especially those from low-income families, succeed in school by ensuring they read on grade level by the end of third grade. Part of a nationwide movement, our region is focused on addressing the most common issues and obstacles that impact a child’s ability to read. We are proud to be part of the now 232 Campaign for Grade-Level Reading communities in the U.S. and two of 11 in Florida.

Attending the meeting to accept the Proclamation will be:  Marilyn Howard, Manatee Community Foundation, and Philip Brown and Bronwyn Beightol, United Way of Manatee County.
