Akron Community Foundation logoThe funding SEI received from Akron Community Foundation supports Readiness Coalitions in their pilot year. A Readiness Coalition is a group of individuals who meet regularly to improve kindergarten readiness and elementary reading for students in a specific community or school district. The goal is to connect district elementary schools; preschool, child care and home care providers; the library and other community partners; businesses, individuals and others to align the community-wide efforts behind early learning success.
