LEAF was awarded two literacy grants for the 2019-20 school year.
The first grant, from the Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation (Best Buy) supports the ongoing District 742 PAKRAT Program (Partners And Kids Reading Alot Together). This is a preschool through grade three child literacy and parent involvement program that LEAF has supported since 2011.
The second grant, from the Morgan Family Foundation will support a new "math literacyand parent involvement"program for preschool students which begins this fall. This program builds on the success of PAKRAT and is called "PAKCAT"(Partners and Kids Counting Alot Together).
Both programs are unique efforts to increase academic performance for District 742 students.
