Comprehensive intervention strategies that will increase overall reading literacy achievement (students can read at or above grade-level by third grade)
Supplemental enrichment programs that support student learning and growth toward grade-level reading mastery
Book distribution programs that increase students access to print materials, encourage students reading outside of the classroom, and develops students life-long love of reading
Programs that support emerging literacy and reading skills among prekindergarten (children enter kindergarten ready to read)
Family engagement programs that help parents understand their role as a childs first and best teacher
Limited funding is available in support of services that help remove barriers toward reading success (as of 7/2013, The Stocker Foundation Board voted to accept LOIs/proposals from Food Banks toward childrens feeding programs)
