Read On Chandler
Read On Chandler’s partnership with Chandler Education Foundation enriches both organizations. Read on Chandler was developed to ensure children in Chandler’s most vulnerable neighborhoods enter Kindergarten with the foundation they need to be successful. Statistics have shown that incoming Kindergartners in two Chandler zip codes are entering school without the basic skills needed to be successful. In those two zip codes alone, almost 10,000 children were recently identified as unable to meet readiness benchmarks when entering Kindergarten. Without a doubt, this program is critical to creating a generation of children who are well prepared for their future.
