Reading Checkup Scholarship

Reading Checkup is a community-based program that encourages reading skills development at home.



Reading Checkup is designed for children in grades K through third grade. In the program, a child completes two online quizzes, then parents/caretakers receive evidence-based recommendations for specific reading skills to focus on at home, while choosing from targeted activities that meet the child’s needs.


Families interested in Reading Checkup can sign up directly on the new NYS PTA Reading Checkup webpage –
