The Dayton-Montgomery County honor specifically named Learn to Earn Dayton’s work. Learn to Earn officials said it was a result of community-wide efforts they led to analyze student data by demographic groups, “leading to system changes and targeted interventions that promote all students’ success.”
Learn to Earn has worked for years on school readiness, school attendance, summer learning and other K-12 benchmarks, getting all of Montgomery County’s public school districts and other groups to collaborate on solutions.
“We have learned so much by partnering with the Campaign for Grade-Level Reading,” said Robyn Lightcap, executive director of Learn to Earn Dayton.
“Our partnerships and coalitions have allowed us to ensure professionals have the tools they need to close the educational achievement gap. That’s our goal — ensuring that all children are realizing their potential.”
