Welcome to the New Mexico Reads To Lead Initiative
Children who acquire a firm foundation in literacy are not only prepared for future academic success, but will possess a lifelong gift of reading. New Mexico's early reading initiative, New Mexico Reads to Lead!, provides an aligned approach for districts and schools to ensure that children can read by the end of third grade—giving them essential skills for future career and college success. The New Mexico Reads to Lead! Initiative funds a reading K–3 Formative Assessment System provided to districts at no cost. It also provides regional and district reading coaches, supports for intervention, and professional development for parents, teachers, reading coaches, and administrators. In addition, this site highlights literacy resources for parents, teachers, administrators, and other stakeholders. Please visit often as the content will be regularly updated.
