Annual Governor’s Summit: Supporting Emergent Literacy Development with Evidence-Based Practices for Young Children

Wednesday, July 12, 2023 @ 12:00am - 11:59pm

Each year, the Sandra Dunagan Deal Center proudly sponsors the Governor’s Summit, a two-day early language and literacy initiative created to bring together content experts, educators, and other professionals from across the state. We honor Governor and Mrs. Deal’s commitment to advancing early education in Georgia through this forum for practitioners to share evidence-based research, best practices, collaborations, and outcomes. As part of each Summit, we also encourage ongoing conversations among participants that lead to better early childhood language and literacy outcomes in each and every community of Georgia. We hope you will attend our next Summit and carry on our tradition of working together to transform ideas to practice.
