Read to Be Ready Grant Announcement

Three Lawrence County Schools are among 203 public school recipients of the 2018 Read to be Ready Summer Grants, which will provide a total of $8,860,000 in funding for tuition-free, month-long literacy-focused summer camps for 7,700 students in need across the state.

For summer 2018, the third year of the grant program, the department has increased funding per student to allow more sites the ability to offer transportation for students.

This will allow programs to fully fund the key components of successful camps, like providing a variety of high-quality texts and a range of learning experiences, while also meeting a key need for students.

Ingram Sowell Elementary, Leoma Elementary School, and Lawrenceburg Public School will be utilizing over $80,000 for summer reading programs to help ensure that first, second, and third graders are getting literacy support during the summer months.

The state increased grant funding this year to allow a greater variety of activities.  Last year activities across the state played a crucial role in increasing students’ vocabulary, reading comprehension, and motivation.

Lawrence County Director of Schools, Johnny McDaniel shares, “We are delighted that three of our schools are receiving the Read to be Ready funding for the summer.  Our district goal is for every student to be reading on grade level by third grade.  These efforts that are in place to prevent literacy summer slide will be crucial as we work towards this great achievement.”

Over the past two years, the Tennessee Departments of Education and Human Services, with support from First Lady Crissy Haslam, have partnered to expand the Read to Be Ready Summer Grant program.

In 2017, about 8,000 rising first, second, and third grade students demonstrated statistically significant gains in critical reading skills and increased their motivation to read. Additionally, through the 2017 summer grant program, more than 180,000 high-quality books were sent home with students, and each student, on average, received 22 new books for his or her home library.

All Tennessee public schools were eligible to apply for the Read to be Ready Summer Grant program.  Prospective applicants such as Ingram Sowell, Leoma, and Lawrenceburg Public Schools were asked to design summer camps that were at least four weeks in length and at least four hours per day, thus providing students with access to at least 80 hours of literacy-focused instruction and enrichment during the summer.  The summer camps will use high-interest books, authentic literacy experiences, and engaging field trips to help increase students’ motivation.
