Barberton Named All American City
Partnerships work! The National Civic League and the Campaign for Grade-Level Reading presented the City of Barberton with one of ten 2022 All-America City Awards on July 21. This award recognizes communities that are committed to improving the prospects for early school success and equitable learning recovery for kids whose families are served by public housing agencies and affordable housing organizations.
Barberton City Schools (BCS) and AMHA collaborated to get more kids ready for kindergarten. This collaboration produced notable results. The community appreciates BCS’s and AMHA’s efforts to get parents more involved, equip families with books and supplies, and identify obstacles to success.
