The Get Georgia Reading Campaign invites you and your partners to join communities across the state in taking action on a shared expectation: that all Georgia’s children are on a path to reading proficiency by the end of third grade. Building on the success of the Community Action Summit, the Campaign is hosting a series of learning events to engage community and education leaders in this growing movement.
The Campaign will host up to 10 self-selected, interdisciplinary teams of 4-5 people for a day-long working session comprised of partners inside and outside of the education sector who impact children ages birth to eight and their families. In addition to a school leader, this may include your local librarian, healthcare provider, parent advocate, early or after care professionals, and others.
Community teams will receive county-specific data on indicators related to third grade reading, listen to speakers illuminate the Campaign’s common agenda and take deeper dives into the four pillar framework, and participate in facilitated planning activities to begin developing a local strategy. You will leave with concrete steps for action in your community.
Seating is limited to 50 people and space will be filled on a first come, first served basis. You must have a complete team - that is, at least four partners representing education and other sectors - to attend.
This is the second in a series of regional events that begin in Augusta. In addition, the early learning track at the Georgia Family Connection Conference will provide an opportunity for a deep dive on the Campaign and its four-pillar common agenda. Please consider this as you register for this event.
