LiiNK Action Steps

  • Identify the elementary schools involved per school district in the project (no more than three elementary schools per district per year).
  • Begin the pilot with grades K and 1 the first year, adding a grade per year with the intent of having grades K-9 completing LiiNK Project by the end of nine years.
  • Train the administrators and teachers for each of the pilot schools to implement the different steps of the model.
  • Identify after-school programs and volunteers who will create a play/creative environment for children when school dismisses each day for those students who cannot go home earlier than the traditional times.
