Florida Public Charter Schools to Participate in “Celebrate Literacy Week, Florida! 2023” from Jan. 23 to Jan. 27 

Member Schools of Florida Consortium of Public Charter Schools (FCPCS) Encouraged to Participate 

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (January 5, 2023) – Many of Florida’s public charter schools are expected to take part in “Celebrate Literacy Week, Florida! 2023,” slated for January 23 through January 27, 2023. 

Member schools of the Florida Consortium of Public Charter Schools (FCPCS) are encouraged to participate in the 2023 celebration, which is the fifteenth annual statewide program dedicated to literacy-related events.  It is a program of the Florida Department of Education (FDOE) and Just Read, Florida!, the Department’s statewide reading initiative. 

The theme of this year’s Celebrate Literacy Week, Florida! program is “Take a Deep Dive Into Literacy – Splash Into New Worlds!”  FDOE encourages all Florida schools to participate in reading a variety of books to support the New Worlds Reading Initiative program, which provides high-quality, free books on a monthly basis to help instill a love of reading among K-5 students who read below grade level. 

Many of Florida’s public charter schools have participated in “Celebrate Literacy Week, Florida!” during previous years, according to FCPCS President Robert Haag.  

“The Florida Consortium of Public Charter Schools encourages our member schools to be part of the 2023 celebration, said Haag.  “Celebrate Literacy Week, Florida! provides a focused timeframe to increase reading among students at public charter schools in our state,” said Haag.  

More information is available by visiting the Celebrate Literacy Week, Florida! website.
