LCSS logo


(Hinesville, GA)- The Georgia Department of Education named Liberty County School System as one of 23 systems in the state of Georgia to receive the Literacy for Learning, Living, and Leading in Georgia grant (L4GA). Districts receiving the competitive grant were selected based on the strength of their proposed plans for utilizing the funds. The system was awarded $3,065,000 paid over a period of five years. These funds are allocated for students in schools within a feeder system including birth to five childcare providers, Button Gwinnett Elementary, Snelson-Golden Middle, and Bradwell Institute. The system will create community-school partnerships with local organizations, the Regional Education Service Agencies (RESA), and teacher preparation programs to collectively improve literacy outcomes. The goal of the L4GA initiative is to improve outcomes for children and families by focusing on the “whole child” beyond the classroom and ensuring sustainable systemic change that supports growth among school leaders, educators, community members, and local organizations. A few highlights for allocation of L4GA funds include:

• provide books and resources to increase literacy in the homes of families and communities

• purchase research-based resources and materials to support systemic targeted interventions for students reading significantly below grade level

• provide ongoing professional development training and support for the teaching of reading and writing,

• purchase instructional and assessment materials to support the five domains of reading and writing,
