Donor gives $180,000 to expand reading in Dyersville, Maquoketa

DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

An anonymous donor gave $180,000 to The Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque to expand the Dubuque Campaign for Grade-Level Reading in two rural communities.

Dyersville and Maquoketa will be joining eight Iowa communities and more than 150 communities nationwide that aim to help elementary students learn to read proficiently by the end of third grade.

The campaign hones in on school readiness, school attendance and summer learning.

The Dubuque Campaign for Grade-Level Reading was launched in 2011.
