In 2019, Sacramento's Literacy Movement asked the Sacramento County Supervisors, City of Sacramento, City of Rancho Cordova, City of Citrus Heights, and City of Elk Grove to sign proclamations recognizing literacy by declaring September to be Literacy Month and September 8th Literacy Day. These proclamations make it possible to keep literacy in front of our policy makers and keep working to make literacy a fundamental right of every Sacramento Citizen.
This September Sacramento Literacy Foundation will be going back to those policymaking bodies to report on the community's literacy. They will share the deep learning loss expected due to COVID-19 along with highlights about positive work happening to advance literacy.
If you would like to volunteer to join the Sacramento Literacy Foundation at community meetings, they would love to have your support. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer.
The Community Literacy Map is a digital destination for philanthropists seeking positive literacy outcomes, for parents seeking literacy resources for their children, and literacy providers seeking community partnerships and growth opportunities.
The goal of the 'Community Literacy Map' and the annual ‘Literacy Report Card’ is to identify where literacy resources are needed most in Sacramento County. This is a community-wide effort to help ALL children achieve grade-level reading and writing. The Report Card illustrates Sacramento County’s progress on key literacy indicators over time, and details the results for the most recent school year.
