• 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 child’s 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 children’s feeding programs)
