The Family Literacy Engagement Specialist plays a critical role in the community by engaging families and equipping them with the knowledge and tools they need to help their children improve their reading skills. Reading is crucial for full participation in civic life and economic opportunity. If children can’t read proficiently by the end of third grade, they lose confidence, are four times more likely to drop out of school, and struggle in life. The Family Literacy Engagement Specialist will assist with family outreach activities to expand the Reading Checkup literacy skill tool to families with children in Pre-K to 4th grade in targeted communities. The Family Literacy Specialist will work with the Executive Director of BCDI-Charlotte and select representatives from Read Charlotte to collect and disaggregate data, develop innovative methods to get families signed up for use of the tool, and develop ways to support them once they have created Reading Checkup accounts.
