The Lafayette-Oxford-University

Campaign for Grade-Level Reading

Our Mission

L.O.U. Reads is a group of local organizations and community leaders dedicated to ensuring all children in the Lafayette-Oxford-University (L.O.U.) community read proficiently by the end of third grade. The coalition focuses its collective energy and expertise on four main areas: school readiness, out-of-school time opportunities, attendance, and targeted efforts to promote grade-level reading, including tutoring.
