Treasure Valley Education Partnership (TVEP) connects and leverages community resources, programs, and people to improve the lives of children and youth in the Treasure Valley. Their early education partners are collectively working to ensure area children are ready to be successful in school. That’s why the partners of Together Treasure Valley are awarding $10,000 to TVEP’s Prepared for School working group. “By investing in early education and teachers we are building a vibrant and successful future for our children and communities,” said Jessica Ruehrwein, TVEP’s Executive Director.
Did you know that 45% of Treasure Valley kindergartners who were tested in the fall of 2016 were below benchmark on the fall Idaho Reading Indicator (IRI)? Prepared for school working group is dedicated to training teachers and helping young children develop the skills needed to be ready for school.
Together Treasure Valley is a Treasure Valley-wide concept, launched in April 2106, to do good in our community and celebrate what a great place the Valley is to live and work. Area businesses have joined together and are making a significant investment in funding this and other initiatives in 2017. The goal is to work together to identify and fund projects that will make the Treasure Valley an even better place.
