2004 Pilot Program
The No Child Left Behind Summer Reading Achievers Program is designed to encourage 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. Thousands of students at 11 sites nationwide will benefit from the program this summer.
Current Status: While we continue to encourage local summer reading initiative efforts, the Department announces that it will not be conducting a Summer Reading Achievers pilot during 2005. Shortly, we will be posting related information regarding the results of the 2004 evaluation of Summer Reading Achievers implementation in the Atlanta Public Schools.
