The Education Alliance Announces Selection of Three New Born Learning Academies for the 2018-19 School Year

The Education Alliance is pleased to announce the selection of three new Born Learning Academy schools for the 2018-19 school year. Meadows Elementary School in Cabell County, Moorefield Elementary School in Hardy County, and Leading Creek Elementary School in Lewis County have been selected as recipients of a $12,000 grant to implement the Born Learning Academy program over the next three years. These three schools join fourteen other elemetnary schools currently implementing the program across the state.  

The United Way Born Learning Academy program, funded by Toyota Motor Manufacturing, WV, Inc. and The Greater Kanawha Valley Foundation, connects schools with families of young children during the critical period of early learning (birth to PreK) prior to school enrollment. Families participate in “academy” trainings where they learn how to create teachable moments for their children. The program will expand to 3-6 more schools in 2019-2020. The application will be released in September 2018. Check back for details.
