Opening Books, Opening Doors is a community partnership and commitment to ensure that by 2020, all students in the Coeur d’Alene School District exiting third grade experience a deep love of reading and meet grade level reading proficiency goals, including comprehension and fluency.  Approximately 85% of the school district’s third graders meet this goal.

This initiative is anchored by a $600,000 grant to University of Idaho to implement the Coeur d’Alene Early Reading Project in partnership with the Coeur d’Alene School District. This project will add to existing Coeur d’Alene School District reading resources for students and teachers, and will coordinate literacy efforts of parents, volunteers and nonprofit organizations in Coeur d’Alene to create a community wide approach to ensure reading success for K-3 students.
