On February 18, 2016, we became a national grade-level reading community. We joined communities across the country who are taking a collective, community-wide approach to building literacy.
A We Read to Succeed advisory council oversees our progress. Mary Ann Alger chairs the council, which includes representatives from: Harrisonburg City Public Schools, Rockingham County Public Schools, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Boys and Girls Club, Massanutten Regional Library, Harrisonburg Chamber of Commerce, Harrisonburg Rotary Club, James Madison University, Smart Beginnings Shenandoah Valley, United Way and AmeriCorps VISTA.
