New $40,000 grant to help students read by third grade - Cincinnati News, Weather, Sports from FOX19 NOW-WXIX

New grant to help CPS students with reading

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Mayor Mark Mallory, Cincinnati Public Superintendent Mary Ronan and the Executive Director of The Strive Partnership Greg Landsman announced a major national grant on Wednesday morning.

Cincinnati is among eight other cities that won a $40,000 grant to help beginning readers. The grant, from Cities of Service and ServiceNation, will be used to recruit and train 50 tutors in five target schools to help kids learn to read by the third grade.

Mayor Mallory stressed the importance of reaching this milestone. "If you can guarantee that a child can read by the third grade, you can guarantee their success. The flip side is also true. If a child cannot read by the time they are in the third grade, they face a lot of obstacles," said Mallory.

The target schools are Roberts Paideia Academy, Pleasant Hill Academy, Pleasant Ridge Montessori, Mount Airy School and Rockdale Academy.
