Literacy for Learning, Living, Leading (L4GA)
Literacy for Learning, Living, and Leading (L4GA) is a unique approach to improving literacy that pairs community-driven action with research-proven instruction. The purpose of the L4GA grant is to improve student literacy.
We will do this by:
- Bringing stakeholders together for collaboration
- Focusing on the whole child
- Providing a personalized approach to literacy
- Providing professional development for our staff
- Providing supports for our students
