 The Literacy for Learning, Living and Leading in Georgia (L4GA) Grant


Georgia was awarded a total of $61,579,800 through the federal Striving Readers grant competition. Ninety-five percent of funds were sub-granted to 38 districts through a state grant competition. These funds are allocated for students in schools within a feeder system (including birth-age 5 childcare providers and elementary, middle, and high schools). 
 
Map of L4GA Districts
​​​​All awarded districts have community-school partnerships with local organizations, the Regional Education Service Agencies, and teacher preparation programs to collectively improve literacy outcomes. Georgia was awarded the funds from the United States Department of Education based on Georgia's Literacy for Learning, Living and Leading Approved Grant​​.

 
Evaluation Information:
A crucial part of our L4GA Grant is evaluation. Teams from the Georgia Institute of Technology and Georgia State University will be collecting data from L4GA districts to 1) document postive practices and 2) gauge the overal impact of the L4GA Project. Districts must collect student performance and achievement data using the schedule found here. ​​
