Improving kindergarten readiness and literacy proficiency
The Pinellas Early Literacy Initiative is a collaboration with Pinellas County Schools to boost reading proficiency in children from Pre-K through second grade by providing specialized training, tools, and resources to their teachers. Literacy achievement largely predicts academic success in every subject area. The goal is to lay a strong foundation for all students early on to give them the best chance of thriving throughout their education.
