OneCommunity Reads, UnaComunidad Leyendo!
OneCommunity Reads, UnaComunidad Leyendo! is a local partnership that engages parents and their children to read at grade level and become active leaders in Springdale, Arkansas—a community with a growing Latino and Marshallese population. During the 2013-2014 school year, 43 families participated in Parents Taking Leadership Action (PTLA) at George and Jones elementary schools. The goal of PTLA is to strengthen parent-school communication, increase educational awareness, and enhance the parental leadership of newcomers. The PTLA initiative complements the Springdale School District’s existing Family Literacy Program, which allows parents to invest up to ten hours a week in their children’s school learning English, spend time in their child’s classroom, and learn about community resources.
