Middletown Literacy Scores Soar by 175% Despite COVID Challenges
Middletown CT – When Dr. Michael Conner joined Middletown Public Schools in 2017, he rallied the entire community to create “Bridge to Brilliance”, a citywide literacy initiative powered by Footsteps2Brilliance. Dr. Conner’s vision was to eliminate the preparation and achievement gaps. He provided all children birth-3rd grade with Footsteps2Brilliance’s comprehensive bilingual literacy apps to prepare them for kindergarten and third grade reading proficiency. The apps were accessible on any smartphones, tablets, and computers that families already owned.
