We’re excited to see our very own Sylvan Learning of Piedmont partnering with Right Path to Learning and EnCompass Academy Elementary to help 15 elementary students in the Oakland Unified School District with reading skills this summer!

“We recognize that the ability to read proficiently in the elementary grades is an equity issue and that all students do not have the available resources to assist them on this quest,” says Barbara Sabbadini, M.A. Director of Contract Services, Sylvan Learning. “Our goal is to work in collaboration with the wonderful staff and the 15 amazing students and families of EnCompass Academy to help make reading proficiency a reality and to put students on a path to success.”

Right Path to Learn’s goal is to provide intervention for 2,000 under resourced students to reach literacy by 2025. To learn more about this initiative or support it, please visit: https://www.rightpathtolearning.org/
