This year we’ve shared several ways you may give back to Summit County organizations working with kids. Now is your chance to volunteer alongside us – our team here at Summit Education Initiative! Read more about an upcoming volunteer opportunity in this post.
Summit Education Initiative (SEI) sends much gratitude to the employees of Meggitt Aircraft Braking Systems for preparing 3,140 total 16 For Success kits and Key Steps to Reading Success kits with SEI staff on June 21 at Quaker Station. United Way of Summit County helped coordinate the effort through its annual United Way Day of Action. Read more about the volunteer event and the purpose of the kindergarten readiness kits in this post.
At Summit Education Initiative (SEI), we know that schools want to engage families; families want their children to be successful; and books at home make a difference in children’s learning and development. Along with SEI, Shelley Houser, a literacy coach for The University of Akron Center for Literacy, had to determine how to incorporate all three ideals into one program. The goal? Reduce the number of children in need of a Reading Improvement and Monitoring Plan (RIMP) across Summit County.
