Early Literacy Innovation Zone Students Read Over 28 Million Words


The United Way and Community Foundation of North Central Massachusetts, in conjunction with Footsteps2Brilliance have created “The Early Learning Innovation Zone of North Central Massachusetts,” which is the first model in the nation for pooling resources to create a birth through 3rd grade ecosystem that unites multiple communities and institutions around early literacy. This proactive approach is fostering a vibrant culture around literacy in a region comprised of small cities and suburban and semi-rural districts. By leveraging the cell phones and tablets that families already own, the Innovation Zone is able to distribute engaging, game-based apps that prepare students for kindergarten and third grade reading proficiency.
