The Get Georgia Reading Campaign represents a broad and diverse group of partners that are rallying people, organizations, and communities to apply a four-pillar framework for action so that all children in Georgia become proficient readers by the end of third grade. These partners from across the state have raised their hands to find new ways of working to ensure all children achieve the critical milestone of third-grade reading proficiency.
Each of the Campaign partners have committed to serve as Campaign ambassadors by:
- Joining with others to apply the four-pillar framework for investing and implementing strategies to improve early literacy in their community;
- Promoting the four-pillar framework and the work of other Campaign partners through their communication vehicles;
- Sharing stories on the Campaign’s website—and learning from others’ posts;
- Integrating messages about the four-pillar framework into presentations and interactions with other stakeholders; and
- Encouraging others to join the Campaign and apply the four pillars.
Get Georgia Reading welcomes the involvement and support of new partners and communities. Joining the Campaign is about taking existing efforts and infusing them with this new approach. We hope your organization and your community will join us in using the pillars to better support children in achieving reading proficiency and work with us to Get Georgia Reading.
