In honor of Celebrate Literacy Week Florida, we are highlighting our programs focused on literacy. The new Pinellas Early Literacy Initiative, launched this year by the Pinellas Education Foundation and Pinellas County Schools, aims to improve kindergarten readiness rates and literacy proficiency among elementary school students. The Initiative focuses on kindergarten readiness by extending the science of reading into Voluntary Prekindergarten (VPK) and K-2 classrooms where teachers have an opportunity to affect educational achievement through evidence-based instruction. To date, 154 teachers have participated in professional development opportunities to support this program. The Pinellas Early Literacy Initiative is possible because of the generous support of the Helios Education Foundation, Riley Education Foundation, The Schwerin Family Fund at the Community Foundation Tampa Bay, Consortium of Florida Education Foundations, Foundation for a Healthy St. Petersburg, Suncoast Credit Union Foundation, Wells Fargo Foundation, and the Tampa Bay Lightning Foundation. #flcelebratesliteracy ...
