Summer Learning Series Session #3

Please join Liftoff WNY on August 15th at 12:00pm for our third and final session of our 2023 Summer Learning Series, “State of Early Literacy in NY”. Reading at grade level by the end of 3rd grade is the most important indicator of future student success. While there has been increased attention on ensuring schools improve instruction through alignment with the science of reading, there is much that can be done in the early years to improve reading skills. The Education Trust-New York, a statewide policy and advocacy organization dedicated to educational equity, recently released a report on the state of early literacy across New York. Jeff Smink, Deputy Director at Ed Trust-NY, will share key findings from the report and lead a discussion on the role that early childhood providers and advocates can play in the fight for better reading outcomes. If you have any questions, please email Amy at
