Amzeal News/10309428
The edtech nonprofit reached 10 million registered teachers and students after only 3 years since launching its digital site.

WASHINGTON - March 26, 2019 - Amzeal -- CommonLit, the free online reading program that provides literacy resources for students around the world, recently celebrated an exciting milestone: the DC-based nonprofit now serves over 10 million registered teachers and students, and continues to grow at a rate of 20,000 new registrants every school day.

To commemorate this achievement, CommonLit's staff hosted a party in downtown DC to celebrate and give thanks to the teachers, friends, donors, and colleagues who made the reading program what it is today.

Michelle Brown, founder and CEO of CommonLit, reiterated the organization's mission at the party when she spoke to the crowd of over 200 attendees. "Students who can read and write at a high level are empowered… they get great jobs, they build families, they participate in our democracy in important ways; and to us, that is everything," she emphasized.

Since its founding in 2013, CommonLit has built a digital reading program with over 1,700 engaging lessons accompanied by rigorous, standards-aligned questions and powerful data analytics for teachers. As part of its international expansion, CommonLit now also offers Spanish content and assessments.
