America Counts Challenge

The America Counts program was initiated in July 1999 after the success of its predecessor, the America Reads program. The America Counts program is an effort to improve student achievement in mathematics and aims in helping students succeed in the foundations of algebra and geometry by the completion of 9th grade. The program works with surrounding middle and high schools, as well as  community organizations to ensure that students are prepared for the challenges of higher level mathematics.
