When schools, community organizations and families partner to support student achievement, everyone benefits. This session explores how The Reading Partnership (TRP) – a community based organization partners with the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) and Black parents to improve literacy acquisition amongst Black students ages 4 to 6.  TRP integrates a strengths-based approach, and evidence-based methods, into the development and delivery of its early childhood literacy program - Reading Partnership for Black Parents (RPBP). The program empowers Black parents/caregivers with the tools, confidence, and support needed to teach their children to read. This workshop will describe how the RPBP program, originally designed as a community-based literacy initiative, was adapted to a school-based model replicable for any school board.
