Catch Up & Read

Catch Up & Read's mission is to equip at-risk elementary students for long term reading success. Our methodology is unique. We believe the best way to reach the large number of deserving students is to equip teachers with research based best literacy practices. In this way, we are leveraging our reach to impact large numbers of students with lasting improvement . Our program has a 3-pronged focus: 1) To Collaborate with campus leadership to promote fidelity and consistency to impact campus-wide literacy improvements. 2) To facilitate leading edge reading practices across each campus through Advanced Teacher Training. 3) To provide teacher-directed after school tutoring, targeting lowest performing students with consistency and repetition to achieve sustained reading achievement.
Catch Up & Read has received requests to expand to over 20 additional Dallas ISD elementary campuses, including all elementary schools in the W.T. White & Bryan Adams Feeder Patterns. This request is for funding to provide weekly teacher training and teacher-directed after-school tutoring for low performing students. For every $57,500 raised, CAR is able to expand services to include another school. Annually, this is < $1,100 per student & teacher.
