Striving Readers Comprehensive Literacy Grant
"Literacy for Life"
Welcome to the Jackson County Public Schools Striving Readers Comprehensive Literacy Grant "Literacy for Life" page.
"The Striving Readers Comprehensive Literacy (SRCL) Discretionary Grant Program is designed to create a comprehensive approach to advance literacy in children, including those with limited-English-proficiency and those with disabilities, from birth to grade 12.
Kentucky’s proposal, Kentucky Comprehensive Literacy – A Framework for Literacy to Unify and Engage Networks of Teachers (KyCL:FLUENT), aims to refine and strengthen existing professional learning supports and systems for literacy development across the Commonwealth. Using the Kentucky Literacy Plan and a peer-review grant process, KDE will assist schools and agencies to develop and implement comprehensive literacy plans. Objectives focus on gains in oral language skills for 4-year-olds, Kindergarten readiness, increased reading proficiency at all school levels and increased content proficiency at the secondary level." *
In July 2018, JCPS was awarded one of the Striving Readers grants from the Kentucky Department of Education.
Each school established a Literacy Team, completed a needs assessment, and selected an approved comprehensive and coherent literacy program or programs that serves Birth to Grade 12.
