Educators are instrumental in promoting reading proficiency in the early grades and following are some ideas to maximize their work.

  • Create welcoming environments where parents see staff that look like them and speak their language.

  • Provide increased professional development opportunities for educators on how to teach reading, raising the quality of instruction for all children.

  • Use data-driven practices to differentiate instruction so that all children learn to read.

  • Use attendance data to identify children who are at risk of being chronically absent and develop proactive strategies for keeping them in school.

  • Partner and pool resources with nonprofits to provide summer learning programs.
