CVUSD Celebrates Read Across America Week

Read Across America Week is a special time to celebrate a nation of diverse readers, promote literacy among children, and bring communities together for the love of reading. CVUSD is devoted to promoting the reading and literary development of our students, providing a springboard for their future academic success. Throughout the year, and especially during Read Across America Week from February 27 to March 3, we celebrate and remain committed to inspiring a new generation of lifelong readers and learners.

Each year, millions of children across the country celebrate Read Across America Week, an annual event sponsored by the National Education Association and many of the country’s leading literacy and youth groups.  In the CVUSD, this annual weekly celebration is co-sponsored by the Unified Association of Conejo Teachers and the District.

This Read Across America Week, schools will participate in activities such as inviting local celebrities and politicians to read to students in the classrooms; encouraging students, teachers, and parents to visit schools of younger students and read to those students; having family reading parties at the school; and organizing student reading events at the school.

At the Tuesday, January 15, 2023 Board of Education Meeting Resolution #22/23-22: Read Across America Week was approved. Click here to view and read the Resolution as a PDF.
