Pre-K Education

Pre-K Education


Our current and recent projects and partners in Pre-K education include:
Lancaster-Lebanon Intermediate Unit 13

We are currently working with Lancaster-Lebanon IU 13 and the Pennsylvania Department of Education on the Keystones to Opportunity (KtO) project, a $33 million per year initiative designed to improve literacy learning outcomes and increase reading achievement among students in danger of academic failure from birth through grade 12. KtO is Pennsylvania's project under the U.S. Department of Education's Striving Readers Comprehensive Literacy (SRCL) program.

Other projects we have evaluated for IU 13 include an Early Reading First project, which was designed to improve the literacy skills of young children.
 
Institute for the Study of Adult Literacy

We have worked with the Institute for the Study of Adult Literacy at Penn State University on an evaluation of family learning centers operated by the Literacy Volunteers of America with funding from Verizon, an evaluation of the Queens Borough (New York) Public Library's video teleconferencing program, and an evaluation of Pennsylvania's statewide Educational Quality for Family Literacy Initiative.
 
Temple University

We are working with Temple University on the evaluation of their Coaching for Early Language and Literacy – Enhanced (ExCELL-E) project, which is designed to help Pre-K, K and 1st grade teachers employ high-quality teaching strategies that result in improved child language and literacy outcomes. ExCELL-E is one of the Investing in Innovation Fund (i3) projects nationwide funded by the U.S. Department of Education.

Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo

We have worked with the Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo on an evaluation of Read to Succeed Buffalo (RTSB), an organization dedicated to increasing early childhood literacy and third grade reading scores in the Buffalo (New York) area.

Goodling Institute for Research in Family Literacy

We have worked with the Goodling Institute for Research in Family Literacy at Penn State on several analyses using Pennsylvania's statewide family literacy database, including studies of family participation and literacy gains.
