Ready! The Campaign for Our Kids’
Future is a comprehensive community-wide collaboration to improve
student performance and educational attainment in the Edgewood,
Franklin, Madison, Monroe, and Middletown School Districts.
Ready! is the culmination of a
community-wide visioning and strategic planning process led by the
Middletown Community Foundation over a three-year period involving
several experts in the field and representation from local early
childhood education practitioners, our region’s major employers, our
area school districts, and community leaders. Nearly 100 people
volunteered their time, donating more than 7,000
man-hours of service
to research the problems facing our local education system, identify
research-based national best practices that have worked elsewhere, and
determine which are best tailored for our local families.
