Investments in All Ages Read Together not only change the lives of disadvantaged children, it also saves taxpayers within Loudoun and Fairfax counties significant future remedial costs. Children arriving in Kindergarten needing remedial instruction cost taxpayers an extra $3,500 per child annually.
In 2014 alone, dozens of AART students graduated to Kindergarten prepared to succeed, saving as much as $98,000 in remediation cost for unprepared students.
AART pairs sites with sponsors who want to more fully invest in the future of local children. A full 30 weeks of instruction for 8-10 children costs $15,000.
