The Children's Summit 2013 was The Children's Movement's first move toward helping to unify hundreds of diverse stakeholders who work for the welfare of the children of Fresno County. In an effort to align the actions and resources of these individuals and their businesses, agencies and nonprofits, Grade-Level Reading was chosen as the core focus of this collaborative work.
Based on the principles of the national Campaign for Grade-Level Reading, the Fresno Grade-Level Reading Coalition was formed in 2014. Due to this important collaborative work, Fresno was named a national Pacesetter community by the Campaign for Grade-Level Reading.
Guided by The Children's Movement of Fresno and the methods of the Stanford d.school's Design Cycle and continuous improvement technical assistance from Strive Together, the Coalition continues its collaborative work through on-going research and monthly Action Forums.
