Literacy for Georgia (L4GA) Grant Office

L4GA logo says Literacy for Learning, Living, and Leading

Literacy for Learning, Living, and Leading (L4GA) is a unique approach to improving literacy that pairs community-driven action with research-proven instruction. The purpose of the L4GA grant is to improve student literacy.

We will do this by: 

  • •  Bringing stakeholders together for collaboration 
  • •  Focusing on the whole child 
  • •  Providing a personalized approach to literacy 
  • •  Providing professional development for our staff 
  • •  Providing supports for our students

All RCPS schools and all RCPS Early Learning (Pre-K) will participate in programs and resources funded by the L4GA grant. The grant will be used to provide professional development and literacy support for teachers, books for classrooms and media centers, instructional technology, Response to Intervention (RTI), parent education and workshops, updated curriculum and more.
