Bright from the Start: Early Care and Learning (DECAL) announces The Phoenix School as Early Language and Literacy Mini-Grant Award Winners (one of two in DeKalb County)!
Governor Nathan Deal today announced grant awards to 15 projects as part of the Early Language and Literacy Mini-Grant Program, a collaborative effort between the Governor’s Office of Student Achievement and the Sandra Dunagan Deal Center for Early Language and Literacy at Georgia College.
“The Early Language and Literacy Mini-Grant Program recognizes those leading the way in developing new, engaging programs to advance language and literacy skills for Georgia students,” said Deal. “These grants will provide communities with additional resources to put more students on track to read on grade-level by the third grade. The bright minds of Georgia’s students are the state’s most precious resource and I commend the educators and community partners working to prepare them for future success.”
The Early Language and Literacy Mini-Grant Program invests in language and literacy development needs for children from birth to age three.
