The Brownstone Success Academy is a program to provide children from low-income families in eastern Los Angeles with early academic development. Children from these households tend to lack school readiness due to the side effects of poverty. Problems with literacy and vocabulary usage can be detected as early as kindergarten. Early academic development prior to kindergarten will lessen issues related to literacy, and implementing the intervention program during a period of rapid brain development can set the foundation for later education and language comprehension. Poverty stressors (e.g., crime, gang violence, domestic violence, substance abuse) are contributing factors to high-risk children's lack of success in education. The large number of school dropouts in the county will continue to increase unless an intervention is made starting with early academic development. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant proposal was not a requirement for the project's successful completion.
