Program Overview

What does Title 1 (Even Start) Family Literacy program provide?

Adult Education - participants learn to speak, read and write the English language.
Early Childhood Education - increasing the developmental skills of children that better prepare them for academic and social success.
Parent Education provides parents with a wide variety of learning topics including parenting strategies, how to be advocates and role models for their children, and strategies to support their children's learning.
Interactive Literacy Activities provide a time "to increase and facilitate meaningful parent-child interactions focused primarily on language and literacy development in a high-quality learning environment where they can learn and play together." (Jacobs, 2004, p. 1977).
Home Visits provide a means for delivering literacy instruction in a familiar setting and to emphasize that parents are the child's first and most important teacher.

Mission Statement

The federally-funded Title 1 Family Literacy Program is a school-community partnership that helps break the cycle of poverty and illiteracy by integrating early childhood education, adult literacy or adult basic education, and parenting education into a unified program. The Program helps children and families achieve the academic standards set forth by the State and uses instructional programs that are based on scientific reading research to...enrich language development, extend learning, and support high levels of educational success for children from birth through age five and their parents;

provide literacy services of sufficient hours and duration to make sustainable changes in a family; provide integrated instructional services for families, where children and their parents learn together to develop habits of life-long learning; and support families committed to education and to economic independence.
