Reading Academies

Clint Independent School District

Per House Bill 3 (HB 3), passed by the 86th Texas Legislature in June of 2019, all kindergarten through third grade teachers and principals must attend a "teacher literacy achievement academy" by the 2022 - 2023 school year. For simplification and to avoid confusion with other grant programs and past literacy achievement academies, the Texas Education Agency is referring to this latest requirement as the HB 3 Reading Academies.

All K-3 teachers, including special education teachers, and principals are required to complete the HB 3 Reading Academies by 2023. This includes literacy specialists who see K-3 students in small groups and K-3 departmentalized teachers. While there are some formal processes pending, districts (LEAs) can proceed to exempt teachers who hold “all-level certification in art, health education, music, physical education, speech communication and theatre arts, or theatre,” as described in §231.3(a).

Welcome esteemed educators and advocates of literacy!

I am honored to introduce myself as your Cohort Leader for this year's Reading Academies. My name is Jesus Muñoz and I am excited to be embarking on this educational adventure with each one of you! Together, we will delve into innovative teaching methods, exchange ideas, and discover powerful ways to teach the power of reading within our classrooms.

The comprehensive cohort will consist of a total of ten in-person sessions where we will collaboratively move through the modules synchronously. Attendance is required to maximize discussions through participation for completion of course assignment requirements.
