Ready4K Launches in San Diego County

December 1, 2015

In September 2015, members of the P-3 Salon travelled to the Bay Area to share best practices with early education researchers, champions, and practitioners from both the Bay Area and the Seattle region. One dividend of that experience is the introduction of the Ready4K program to San Diego County. Ready4K sends text messages to parents with children entering school to remind them to engage in literacy activities with their children. Developed at Stanford University and piloted at a school in the Bay Area, Ready4K proved to create learning gains for children. Members of the P-3 Salon have brought the concept back to San Diego and it has been adopted into schools in Chula Vista Elementary School District.
