Last week, we reported the exciting news that the Community Foundation of North Central Washington and United Way of Chelan and Douglas counties are collaborating on a comprehensive approach to assist early childhood education in our region. The two organizations applied for and received a grant of $85,000 a year for four years from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. That money will fund AmeriCorps reading volunteers for 15 elementary schools that have high rates of poverty and where 70 percent of the students are reading below grade level. In addition, some money will go to support the Classrooms Can! program that offers 50 teachers $1,000 for entrepreneurial projects to keep kids engaged in math, science, technology, arts education, literacy and obesity prevention.
