Welcome to Literacy Partners

  • Literacy Partners  

    Literacy Partners focus on addressing the systemic problem of 3rd grade literacy.  Leaders in education research for Central Texas identified 3rd grade literacy as one of four systemic problems facing our community.  Research identified that from kindergarten to 3rd grade a child learns to read.  From 3rd grade on a child reads to learn.  If a child is behind grade level at the end of 3rd grade his/her academic and economic future is not promising.

    With over 200 elementary schools located in Greater Austin, the need to reach every at-risk child is great.
