Connecticut State Department of Education
The State Department of Education’s Family Learning Initiative works to expand, strengthen and coordinate family literacy services in the state. It was designed to promote the literacy of both parents and children as a learning team. Family Literacy exists in all families and occurs naturally during day-to-day routines to help adults and children get things done (like using drawings or written words to communicate ideas; keeping records; making lists; or sharing stories and messages through reading, writing and conversation). For more information on how to get things done while improving your families learning, see Family: Where Learning Grows in English or Spanish.
