BLFLI is a project undertaken by the Stateline Community Foundation to focus community efforts on the critical importance of early childhood literacy (0-5) for every child and family in the Stateline Area. The Initiative is comprised of Community Partners whose programs and activities actively promote early childhood literacy efforts through their own unique mission and interactions with members of our community and the greater Stateline Area who would benefit from early childhood literacy programs. Targets for measuring the success will at a minimum look to student improvement on the 4K PALS test which all students take when entering the school district; we will also look at the 3rd grade reading score which is an important predictor of student academic success/failure.

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
Policies and processes
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
