This CAN is in the process of forming and will officially kick off this year to determine shared action for improving third grade reading scores across the RMC2C Partnership. Our Community Leaders Council will be setting a Global Target for this outcome area in Quarter 2. The CAN will then officially assemble to establish subsequent short-term targets and begin the process of identifying factors and root cause analysis. If you are interested in participating in this effort, please contact us at MattHorn@ACYI.org.
WHY EARLY GRADE READING? With the overarching goal of ensuring that our children and youth become productive, contributing members of the workforce, the RMC2C Partnership is focused on increasing student achievement and the safety and well-being of children and youth in our community.

HOW? The Collaborative Action Network (CAN) that focuses on increasing proficiency in early grade reading, functions as a collective impact mechanism that brings practitioners and partner organizations together to provide cross-sector coordination of efforts in areas that impact early grade reading proficiency.
