Readiness to Learn links families to local resources for food, housing, health, family safety, employment, and aid in supporting children’s school success. Family issues such as poverty, mental illness, drug and alcohol use, homelessness and lack of knowledge of community resources present barriers to student success. Readiness To Learn services help parents support their children. As part of School Reform in Washington State, these services help to level the playing field, so that all children can reach state standards. Readiness To Learn provide outreach services to families of elementary school children who show signs of distress, poor attendance, tardiness or behavior problems, which are affecting their ability to learn. Our evaluation plan connects family support to school readiness and success, and has shown improved attendance, behavior and achievement. Services can be accessed through School Counselors, Family Support Generalists and at Family Support Centers. Services are free and voluntary with no income requirements.
