Session Dates

Wednesday June 15, 2022 2:00 PM - 3:15 PM - Webinar

Educational initiatives to improve reading outcomes by implementing the findings from the science of reading are being established in school systems across the country. In order for those initiatives to be sustainable and successful, multiple stakeholders must ensure that the roles they play are fully committed to the effort. This presentation will focus on the stakeholder role of the literacy leader in a school system such as building principals, curriculum directors, and superintendents. A case study of a successful implementation will be highlighted. Without knowledgeable, committed leadership, educators cannot fully implement the practices needed for transformation. But together, educators and leaders can create equitable access to literacy practices that are grounded in the science of reading for the sake of their student, ensuring that the initiative they embark upon is impactful and sustainable.
