Education Connection Literacy Partners

Education Connection is a movement that started here locally–a movement of churches serving Leander ISD.  School district leaders told local churches the best way to serve would be to help all children be able to read at the 3rd grade level by the end of the 3rd grade.  Students not achieving this goal are 4 times more likely to drop out of school before graduating from high school.  What an opportunity to serve!

This movement has now spread to many nearby school districts and continues to grow due to its effectiveness.  Join us in this True Adventure!

Scope of Responsibility of a Literacy Partner:  Literacy Partners provide consistent, positive support to children in reading (English and Spanish).  Education Connection Literacy Partners serve students and teachers by reading weekly with 1st-3rd graders.  They serve with humility and consistency, while keeping it simple: “Every child reading by the end of 3rd grade.”

Overview:

  • One year commitment at one campus
  • Work outside the classroom (Hallway, etc.) for two 15 minute one-on-one reading sessions per week
  • Serve with Humility, Consistency, Simplicity
  • Commit to the entire school year (Oct – May)
