2. Save the Date
3. Complete Reading Achievement Plan
Each participating district will be required to submit a local literacy plan (Reading Achievement Plan) as part of their application, due March 1. EnvisionEdPlus is pleased to point out that this is different than our original recommendation (which, in the absence of written direction otherwise, was to submit RAPs by the Dec. 31 deadline for those schools already required by law to complete the plans).
Early childhood education providers will be required to complete a different form, called a Reading Readiness Plan.
