Early Literacy Improvement Community - School Year 2020 Launch

Join us to celebrate the start of the school year and the launch of our Early Literacy Improvement Community.

Please register here.

Over the past four years we've engaged teachers and leaders across 11 schools to answer the question, "How can we improve literacy in K-2 classrooms in Baltimore?" We've learned a lot about opportunities and barriers, what works and what doesn't, and know without a doubt that significant improvements are attainable.

We will share stories of success, and highlight learning that can improve outcomes at scale. We will share new ideas and ways we plan to engage teachers this year to solve our most intractable problems. We hope you will join us to engage with others as we begin the school year with new hope for a brighter future.

This event is open to all K-2 teachers, school administrators, and staff. Additionally, others working in the education, or non-profit sectors as well as individuals who support and fund this work are also invited. Space is limited, so register early.

Light food and drinks will be provided.
