Community Solutions Action Plan
When the board of United Way of Northern Nevada and the Sierra established its goal to raise third grade reading scores, it was with the awareness that it would take the involvement of the entire community. 
It's started! 
We've moved ahead with a formal ' Community Solutions Action Plan' (CSAP) to be completed in 2017. 
This is a collaborative effort by foundations, nonprofit groups, business leaders, government agencies and local communities across northern Nevada. The plan will ensure that more children succeed in school and graduate prepared for college, a career, and active citizenship.
