ABOUT US

The NLPDC was founded on the belief that every student has the ability to learn.

The NLPDC is a collaboration of literacy service providers, foundations, businesses, School Districts and other community partners committed to the goal of equipping, at a proficient level, children with the life skills of reading, writing, and communication.

 

The NLPDC will galvanize these organizations around a shared vision of a city-wide network of high quality early literacy resources that are accessible, collaborative, integrated, and well supported.

In order to accomplish these goals, the NLPDC will gather, share and use the latest research to inform its partners, expand funding opportunities for high quality service providers, promote successful strategies and develop evaluation systems to measure progress and success. 

NLPDC  produces academic achievement results quickly, without the need for long process analysis. We have a history of success in schools and districts of all sizes, from large urban districts to rural and remote schools. We help our customers build their own capacity for effective instruction by laying a foundation of research-based knowledge, supporting the use of proven tools, and developing leadership.

 

The NLPDC supports Women and Minority Owned Businesses.  We embrace diversity, equity and equality for all services.
