Worcester honored as pacesetter for early literacy work

Worcester has been honored as a pacesetter community by the Campaign for Grade-Level Reading for exemplary work using proven and promising strategies, as well as for its work in addressing the health determinants of early school success.

This recognition comes as part of the review of Worcester’s 2017 All-American City Award application, which was submitted in January.

“Pacesetter Honors are among the highest awards presented by the GLR Campaign,” said Ralph Smith, the managing director of the Campaign for Grade-Level Reading. “We are very proud of Worcester and the numerous organizations and individuals behind the community for joining forces and working tirelessly to uplift children and families. They remind us that we are seeing great progress and real results all across the country.”
