Whit Davis Champions Read LSGT Grant
In 2018, the Clarke County School District set aside grant funds to distribute to LSGTs to create innovative programs that build the capacity of schools and communities to support the achievement, success, and well-being of children in alignment of one or more of the District's focus areas of literacy, numeracy, and social-emotional development.
Grant Budget: $26,500
Whit Davis will be focusing on literacy with their innovation. In order to address literacy needs, Whit Davis will create a School Literacy Taskforce to create a shared vision for literacy. The Taskforce will evaluate the existing literacy efforts at Whit Davis, attend professional literacy conferences, re-deliver best practices and information, provide professional development for staff through book study opportunities. Staff feedback and classroom observations will also help reveal the need to increase reading opportunities. The literacy goal at Whit Davis is for 70% of students to show proficiency. Furthermore, the program will help build community assets and forge partnerships that will extend literacy efforts. The Taskforce will include members from the community.
