Applications are now being accepted for the 2014-15 Kentucky Reading Project (KRP). The deadline for submission is February 28.

KRP is a yearlong graduate-level course focused on research-based literacy instruction. KRP offers an excellent opportunity to learn about topics such as:

  • Senate Bill 1
  • Kentucky Core Academic Standards
  • College and Career Readiness
  • Formative Assessments

Faculty members at each of the eight state universities provide instruction at various sites across the state.

Teachers in grades K-5 may participate in KRP and will receive a stipend, professional resources, and graduate credit (if desired) upon completion of the course in May 2015. The National Center for Families Learning,, provides one day of training at each site. Participation in KRP involves no cost to the teacher, school, or district.

This initiative is sponsored by the Collaborative Center for Literacy Development (CCLD). Since the inception of the program in 1999, KRP has trained more than 3,100 teachers throughout the state.
