About Turn The Page STL
Turn the Page STL is St. Louis’ city-county wide literacy initiative dedicated to increasing the number of children that are reading at or above grade level by the end of third grade. Turn the Page STL will align and measure the progress of this work, based on the National Campaign for Grade-Level Reading, which includes school readiness, school attendance, and summer learning. This work will be viewed through a racial equity lens with the understanding that racial inequity in metropolitan St. Louis’ public education system has contributed to generations of under literate citizens.
Turn the Page STL, St. Louis’ Chapter of the National Campaign for Grade Level Reading, is a city-county wide literacy initiative dedicated to increasing the number of children that are reading proficiently by the end of third grade.
