Our Work in Education

Casey’s two-generation approach to education means helping kids prepare for and progress in school while also helping their parents to gain financial stability so they can be their children’s first and best teachers. We do this by:

Making third grade reading a national priority

A broad coalition is working through the Campaign for Grade-Level Reading to enlist parents, schools, educators, communities and policymakers in a concerted focus on school readiness, reading proficiency, attendance and summer learning.

New research affirms that improving early reading skills is an essential part of ensuring more kids will succeed academically, graduate from high school on time and prosper as adults.

Boosting early learning in Atlanta and East Baltimore

While elementary kids are learning to read and write, preschoolers are preparing to follow in their tracks at the Early Learning and Literacy Center, co-located in Atlanta’s Dunbar Learning Complex.

A new community school and early childhood center in East Baltimore will become a hub for resident involvement and learning.

Promoting high-quality early care and education

Evidence tells us that early childhood interventions are among the best investments our nation can make. The rate of return provides reduced crime, an educated workforce and more stable families.

Demonstration sites in Buffalo, Columbus and San Antonio are helping us explore how to engage parents with young children as part of an emerging family-centered community change project.

New Guide Helps Schools Improve With Evidence-Based Interventions

The Florida Center for Reading Research recently released An SEA Guide for Identifying Evidence-Based Interventions for School Improvement, funded by the William T. Grant Foundation, the Overdeck Family Foundation and the Casey Foundation. The guide will assist State Education Agencies in turning around schools requiring comprehensive or targeted support. 

An SEA Guide for Identifying Evidence-Based Interventions for School Improvement

This guide is designed to help State Education Agencies (SEAs) conduct self-studies to identify interventions that may be implemented in schools needing improvement or that require comprehensive or targeted support. The interventions selected should be those that are most relevant and appropriate based on the needs of schools, with the strongest evidence base possible under the Every Student Succeeds Act. 

An SEA Quick-Start Guide for Identifying Evidence-Based Interventions for School Improvement

The quick-start guide provides a brief overview of the self-study process which is described in more detail in the full State Education Agencies (SEAs) Guide for Identifying Evidence-Based Interventions for School Improvement. This process helps SEAs to identify appropriate and relevant interventions that may be implemented in schools requiring comprehensive or targeted support.
