Detroit Parent Network and The Education Trust-Midwest have announced a partnership designed to help prepare and equip Detroit area parents for Michigan’s ‘Read by Grade Three’ law.

By the end of summer 2019, co-developed toolkits for parents and families will be publicly available as a result of this collaboration. Designed to help parents ensure that the needs of their students are being met, the toolkits will focus on the requirements of the law, ways to engage with schools and school districts to support student learning, and identify existing community resources to help students learn to read.

Made possible through the support of the Max M. & Marjorie S. Fisher Foundation, the effort will focus first on tools for families in Detroit. Beginning late summer, jointly-developed trainings will begin that equip parents and community members to utilize available tools and resources.
