CEF is deeply committed to improving literacy achievement and reading instruction for our CUSD students. In an effort to close our literacy achievement gap, CEF funds specialized professional teacher development and the necessary student reading materials. In addition, CEF co-led The Big Lift, a multi-million dollar grant to improve reading proficiency in our community.
First Students Learn to Read…Then They Read to Learn
CEF is embarking on an effort to dramatically improve reading levels. We know this will also change lives. Students spend their first few years learning to read and then spend the rest of their lives reading to learn.
