Early Literacy Program

The Janesville Early Literacy Task Force is committed to engaging the entire community in preparing children from birth to age four to succeed in school and life by empowering families to read, talk, and play together every day.

The School District of Janesville is committed to the success of all students as reflected in our promises to children, families and the community: Every student is know by name, strength, and need; and every student graduates ready for college, career, and life 90% of 3rd graders will read at or above grade level

In order to achieve these promises, the School District of Janesville recognizes that waiting until our children start P4J is often too late. The Janesville Early Literacy Task Force was formed in partnership with area businesses and organizations to ensure that every child and family has access to books and information regarding the importance of early literacy and brain development.
