Shelby County Early Childhood Education Plan

The Shelby County Early Childhood Education Plan is a comprehensive blueprint aimed at ensuring all children in Shelby County receive the aligned, high-quality support they need from birth so that they read on grade level by third  grade. Seeding Success and the PeopleFirst Partnership, along with more than 30 education, philanthropy, government and business organizations collaborated in the fall of 2015 to help develop the plan. After unanimous approval, the plan  was officially launched on April 21 of 2016.
