Early Literacy Model

The Learning Alliance's Early Literacy Model builds Enriched Literacy (social emotional, foundational, applied) and emergent learning cultures in our schools and community so that we create the conditions for 90% literacy by the end of third grade. Our model is comprised of four areas:  

  • Extended Learning for Students

    • Increase community-wide collaboration and investment in effective extended learning programs after school, summer and during the school day to support struggling students and catch them up with grade level expectations.

  • Excellence in Teaching 

    • Strengthen enriched literacy teaching and learning professional development and classroom practices in K-3.

  • Energized School Leadership

    • Increase commitment to building an early literacy culture K-3rd grade on the part of the school board, district and school leaders.

  • Empowered and Engaged Community

    • Broaden community wide awareness of the importance of early literacy (birth through 3rd grade) to our schools' success and our community's economic vitality. Increase collaboration, innovation and sustainable investment funds by the community.

Together We Are Moonshot!

Schools can’t do it alone. We know that improving literacy is not just a school challenge – it’s a community challenge. Working to reach our Moonshot Moment goal of 90% literacy, is an entire community that cares about our most precious resource – our children. Through collaborative efforts, The Learning Alliance, community partners, teachers, school administrators, parents and businesses, are cultivating literate, compassionate and creative citizens who will improve our world.
