Nevada Striving Readers Comprehensive Literacy Grant

Nevada is one of the six states across the U.S. that has recently been funded by the Striving Readers - Comprehensive Literacy federal initiative.The primary aim of this grant is to improve the pathway of literacy acquisition for at-risk children and their families. This is an historic endeavor for the state of Nevada, in that it is the first time that our state has undertaken a completely comprehensive approach to literacy acquisition (birth through grade 12 and beyond). Four school districts in our state (Clark, Douglas, Lyon, & Washoe) have been chosen to be the literacy trailblazers in this exciting endeavor. Since a key tenet of the Nevada’s Striving Readers initiative is using technology for networking and sharing best practices, we see the National Literacy Exchange as a powerful route for making this happen. We invite educators across America to join us in our efforts to achieve systemic transformation in literacy across our state.
