Today, only 45% of children in Guilford County enter kindergarten literacy-ready. One in 4 will need significant remediation to catch up with their peers — that’s more than 1,000 children each year. Children who start behind have a difficult time catching up.

To change outcomes for children, local teams are developing and implementing strategies around key priorities.

  • Six are part of the Get Ready Guilford Initiative, our partnership with The Duke Endowment. (Read more about our partnership here.)
  • Four priorities are key supporting priorities that are critical to the success of this effort.
