Innovative Partnership with Portland Public Schools and Partner Organizations

This fall, in partnership with Portland Public Schools and seven partner organizations, Reading Results has kicked off service at five schools as a part of a collective impact project. Our goal: improve reading outcomes for PPS PreK through second graders.

Working within PPS’s Strategic Framework to ensure every student succeeds, regardless of race or class, students at Bridger K-8, Chief Joseph/Ockley Green K-8, James John K-5, Sitton K-5, and Rosa Parks K-5 will experience a new level of community support.

Reading Results, along with SMART (Start Making a Reader Today), The Children’s Book Bank, The Black Parent Initiative, The Shadow Project, 80%ers for Education Excellence, Schools Uniting Neighborhoods (SUN), and the Multnomah County Library, will work to support each school’s efforts to create a culture of literacy and improve reading outcomes for students attending those schools.

Through this innovative partnership, Reading Results has expanded the number of students served by 120 and looks forward to helping each student become a stronger reader.
