Child Hood Literacy Program Pledge Option Continues
There are over 240 communities focused on improving childhood literacy. In 2016, 38 communities were recognized by the National Campaign for Grade Level Reading as Pacesetters for “leading by example” to solve one or more of the challenges that can undermine early literacy—school readiness, school attendance, summer learning.
Of those 38, DELAWARE COUNTY ranked one of 15 communities who achieved significant improvements in reading at grade-level. For more information about the new childhood literacy program pledge option, visit the Dolly Parton's Imagination Library page.
2017 pledge materials were mailed directly to all employees through campus mail on September 20, 2017. If you misplaced your pledge packet, please contact Marta Stephens.
Annual campaign payroll deductions will start in January 2018.
