The conference interactive sessions will focus on increasing awareness and developing skills of parents to (1) prepare their children for school readiness, (2) reduce summer learning loss, (3) reduce absenteeism, (4) help their child read at grade level by the end of third grade, and (5) increase parents’ understanding of their role in literacy in the home.
