Grants of up to $75,000 per year for three years to Oregon school districts that are working to improve academic achievement for young children (from prenatal through third grade). These grants are intended to create stronger connections between elementary schools and the providers of early childhood care and education programs in their neighborhoods, and between schools and parents of young children.
Funding will support the planning and development of P-3 (prenatal through grade three) alignment strategies in school district communities with strong leadership and motivation. Grants will be supplemented by technical assistance and training through a learning community of grantees.
Through aligned P-3 systems, OCF ultimately expects to see changes in Oregon that include:
- A more collaborative early learning - elementary school system with greater training opportunities for teachers,
- Greater family engagement in learning as a core instructional strategy,
- Comprehensive data systems that support teaching and learning,
- Less fade-out of gains from high-quality early childhood programs,
- Higher third grade reading scores,
- A smaller achievement gap,
- Results for children seen as a responsibility shared across early learning programs, grades K-3, families, and communities, and
- More children entering school ready to learn.
