One of PPS’ top three priorities is ensuring that all students read well by the end of third grade. The PPS Read Together initiative has brought together six reading and family organizations–one of which is The Shadow Project–to provide students at five pilot schools with intensive, wrap-around literacy services.
“The SuperSensory Literacy Spaces created by The Shadow Project make literacy more accessible for our students with learning challenges,” said Portland Public Schools (PPS) Superintendent Carole Smith. “I’m thankful The Shadow Project is part of our Read Together initiative.”
