Dedicated to promoting and supporting literacy efforts in Chesapeake, Virginia

Welcome to 
Chesapeake Reading Council (CRC)

Due to VSRA technical difficulties, the 2015-2016 membership form is not available at this time.  An effort is being made to streamline the membership process for our members' convenience.  This has resulted in a delay, and we anticipate that the form will be posted no later than August 15th.  An email will be sent to 2014-15 members announcing availability of the form. Thank you for your patience as we look forward to an exciting year with VSRA and literacy in Virginia.

The Chesapeake Reading Council (CRC) is a public service organization devoted to promoting literacy throughout our city and to fostering a lifelong pursuit of reading.  The Council is concerned with all aspects of reading and writing.

The CRC has been chartered for over 43 years and is a vital force in reading education throughout the City of Chesapeake.  Working in all Chesapeake public schools and in the community, we support children, parents, teachers, school administrators and community leaders by providing programs and resources which support literacy and literacy education.

Membership in the CRC includes elementary, middle and secondary school personnel, central administration staff, and members of the community at large.  The Chesapeake Reading Council is an affiliate of the Virginia State Reading Association and the International Reading Association.
