WUAR employs three organizational structures to address issues and to plan and implement strategies that will positively affect children’s literacy and ultimately children’s third grade reading proficiency.
The Community Collaborative
The Community Collaborative is a vehicle for the entire community to provide feedback on work that is occurring and to identify where there are gaps that need to be filled. This group is composed of interested citizens across the spectrum of the county and meets two times each year.
Action Teams, around each of the three supporting pillars of WUAR, are composed of community volunteers, community agency representatives, and members of the Leadership Team. These teams develop and utilize logic models to move the work forward. Specific strategies are discussed and implemented through these teams.
The Leadership Team
The Leadership Team is the governing body of WUAR and is composed of representatives from agencies aligned with the three pillars. The Leadership Team keeps a finger on the pulse of factors effecting literacy in Wake County and considers strategies recommended by each action team to move forward the third grade reading proficiency needle.
