For the fifteenth year, the Collaborative Center for Literacy Development (CCLD) is sponsoring the Kentucky Reading Project (KRP), a professional learning initiative for K-5 public school teachers. KRP is a yearlong graduate-level course focused on best practices in research-based literacy instruction. Literacy faculty at each of the eight state universities provides instruction for the class. The National Center for Family Literacy also provides one day of training in family engagement in literacy.
Teachers who participate in KRP will receive a stipend, professional resources, and graduate credit (if desired) upon completion of the course in May 2015. There is no cost to the participant, the school, or the district. Information and applications will be available on CCLD’s website at www.kentuckyliteracy.org after Jan. 1, 2014.
