The Learning Alliance is a catalyst for innovation and collaboration supporting the Moonshot Moment transformative goal by arming front-line educators, parents, and community leaders with the tools, knowledge, and support necessary for success. We are dedicated to achieving 90% student literacy by third grade. Through innovative, evidence-based approaches to teaching and learning, we empower teachers to transform children’s lives. Through partnerships with the School District of Indian River County, Indian River State College, community leaders and civic youth organizations in our community, we hope to create local solutions that can serve as a model for the nation.

About the Moonshot Moment:
In 2012, the former SDIRC Superintendent Dr. Fran Adams, in collaboration with The Learning Alliance, launched the “Moonshot Moment: 90% Literacy by Third Grade” making it one of the 140 communities working with the Campaign for Grade Level Reading (CGLR,) a nationwide movement of local leaders, states, nonprofits, and foundations putting a stake in the ground on third-grade reading. The communities are adopting a collective impact strategy, engaging the full community around the goal of supporting low-income children from birth through third grade. Acknowledging that schools alone cannot address all the challenges that keep children from learning to read, the School District of Indian River County works with nonprofits and other partners to ensure that children arrive at kindergarten ready to succeed, attend school regularly, and keep learning through the summer months. The Indian River County Moonshot Moment Literacy Leaders group is comprised of over 70 business, nonprofit, School District, and concerned citizens working together to create programs and momentum to reach the 90% literacy goal!
