Sioux City recognized for work in supporting early school success

Article Summary:

The Campaign for Grade-Level Reading has recognized Sioux City with Pacesetter Honors for its work in 2019, including using LENA Home to boost school readiness for infants and toddlers.

The district was celebrated for partnering to distribute books at medical visits in the local community and to offer home visiting focused on increasing adult-child interaction using LENA Home.

A partner agency, The Community Action Agency of Siouxland (CAA), implemented the program, reaching 11 families. Families learned how to engage more with their children, setting them up for a lifetime of learning success.
