PARTNER TO ACCELERATE EARLY GRADE LITERACY LEARNING RECOVERY GROUNDED IN THE SCIENCE OF READING

Partner applications for the 2021 - 2022 are closed. 

COVID-19 has had a drastic impact on students and learning across our state

The pandemic has amplified social-emotional stressors for students and led to learning time loss. We invite you to partner with us in its wake to support K-3 students with literacy learning recovery grounded in the science of reading and reading instruction.

K3 VISION

IMAGINE IF EVERY K-3 STUDENT HAD ACCESS TO A LITERACY TUTOR

That’s a future we can create together. North Carolina Education Corps partners with PSU to recruit educate and activate community members to support students as “corps members.”

Each corps member receives professional development aligned to the science of reading and reading instruction, as well as instruction on social-emotional development and learning.

In 2021-2022 corps members will assist PSUs in accelerating early literacy learning recovery by delivering high-impact phonics and phonemic awareness tutoring.

Engaging NC residents to accelerate early grades literacy learning recovery

We have serious goals. By 2023-2024, we plan to support corps members working as early grades literacy tutors grounded in the science of reading across the state.

1-3 corps members per elementary school

100+ districts

1,000+ corps members

This year, we plan to work with 20+ PSU’s and collectively support 250 corps members.  

Hear perspectives from participating district leaders. We're grateful for this committed community of educators across the state of North Carolina.

What Our Inaugural Partners Say

NC Education Corps will rock your world. And we’re so proud of young people who step up to serve.
– Eric Davis

In this time of so many uncertainties, this initiative has given teachers hope that we can find their students and get them back on track.
– Polly Long, Mt. Airy City Schools

Having NC Ed Corps tutors be an advocate and physically be there to ensure [my student] is getting his missing work/current work completed, is a Godsend. I would hope and truly believe that those students who may have been difficult to reach are now being reached because of NC Ed Corps!

- WSFS Teacher
