Toyota Family Learning Grant
Unique Partnership with Toyota and National Center for Families Learning Benefits Literacy

A national two-generation family learning program that aims to provide a solution to the educational challenges facing low-income and ethnically diverse families was unveiled February 25 in Plano ISD. The program – funded by a $175,000 grant from Toyota – is led by the National Center for Families Learning (NCFL). Plano ISD is working hand-in-hand with NCFL to implement Toyota Family Learning. The program is now up-and-running at Plano Family Literacy School and Sigler Elementary School where more than 200 family participants have been enrolled since September, 2015. This week, leadership from Plano ISD, City of Plano, NCFL and Toyota announced the partnership at an event hosted at Plano Family Literacy School.
