The No Child Left Behind Summer Reading Achievers program is designed to encourage Atlanta students in grades K-8 to read during the summer months and help prevent fall-off in reading skills during the vacation. The program is simple. Students who read 10 books over the summer will receive a variety of prizes, including free books and a Summer Reading Achievers certificate. This year's program is a pilot conducted by the U.S. Department of Education and the Atlanta Public Schools. If successful, the program will expand next year to schools nationwide.
