  • School-based Training and Coaching: to increase effectiveness in reading instruction in kindergarten through second grade in high-needs district schools;

  • Development of Teacher Literacy Leaders: to develop the content knowledge and leadership of 2nd-grade teachers to lead and sustain effective reading instruction within their schools;

  • District-wide Teacher Training: for 2nd-grade teachers across district’s elementary schools to share research-informed reading practices;

  • School Leaders’ Literacy Training: to increase school leaders’ knowledge base and capacity to use effective reading curricula and support research-informed instructional practices in their schools;
