Impact Series: K-12 Education

Tuesday, March 23, 2021

Join us to learn about our new focus area: K-12 education! This year, our K-12 work will focus on bringing together a diverse coalition of literacy advocates, including nonprofit leaders, librarians, teachers, and parents, to work towards a shared vision of supporting children to ensure they are reading on grade level by the 4th grade.

Michelle Hutson-Crawford, Director of K-12 Education, will share with attendees the current state of K-12 education in our community, the first actions this coalition will take, and what the long term goals of this work are.
