What is ASRA?

The Alabama School Readiness Alliance is a statewide, nonprofit coalition advocating for the expansion of high-quality, voluntary pre-k. ASRA was formed in 2006 as a joint campaign of A+ Education PartnershipAlabama GivingAlabama Partnership for Children and VOICES for Alabama’s Children. ASRA’s mission is to close student achievement gaps by ensuring that all children enter school ready to learn. We build support for pre-k expansion by:

Collaborating with community and civic leaders

Raising public awareness of the need for and effectiveness of Alabama's high-quality, voluntary First Class Pre-K program

Advocating for increased state, local and private investments in high-quality voluntary pre-k
