School Success

Teens Learning at Future Ready Collier

What We Have Learned

In 2020, it was determined that Future Ready Collier needed an additional goal specific to school-age years. The launch of this goal was delayed, however, due to pandemic circumstances. Future Ready Collier is now poised to fully enact the K-12 School Success Goal as a bridge in our cradle-to-career efforts, with a focus on elementary and middle school. There is significant enthusiasm within the existing network for the School Success Goal as a necessary next step in the evolution of Future Ready Collier.

Goal: Ensure all youth are provided support during their elementary and middle school years

The School Success Goal Group is composed of staff and volunteer leaders from organizations aligning work and building strategies together, focused on the following collective priorities:

  • Gather information around critical interventions in literacy and ways to increase proficiency in literacy for children in elementary and middle school
  • Engage partners to understand out-of-school time information to support learning through enrichment
  • Gain knowledge around student and family supports in multiple areas including mental health

The following organizations are working to ensure all children are Kindergarten ready:
