About Striving Readers...

The purpose of the project is to improve literacy instruction and performance for adolescent learners in 21 rural Kentucky middle schools and high schools.  Participating schools will implement two complementary literacy initiatives, and the impact of that implementation on student learning and teacher practice will be the focus.


The grant includes ongoing professional development, literacy coaching, funds for instructional resources, and support for leadership.
