Partnership to pilot kindergarten ready kids

ASIA is please to be an active and integral member of The Supporting Partnerships to Assure Ready Kids (SPARK), a Sisters of Charity Foundation of Canton program, which in Summit County is led by Summit Education Initiative (SEI,, to address kindergarten readiness.

For its role, ASIA is providing the bilingual and bicultural access to help SEI pilot SPARK with Burmese Mon people (for further information, see page 5 in SPARK 2010 Spring Newsletter – click here).   Additionally, ASIA will partner with SEI to develop language and culturally appropriate SPARK materials for Spanish-speaking children and their families in Summit County, which is generously supported by PNC.
