Graphic that reads: Join the Kentucky Reading Academies! A photo in the background of a young girl reading a book.Over 1,000 teachers have registered for the Kentucky Reading Academies, a new initiative that brings the Language Essentials for Teachers of Reading and Spelling (LETRS) professional learning (PL) to educators across the commonwealth.

Kentucky’s youngest readers must have every opportunity to develop their literacy skills, and as schools tackle unprecedented challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic, teachers must have unprecedented support. The LETRS PL course of study was specifically chosen to support teachers because of its demonstrated success on a national scale. LETRS training teaches the how, what and why of literacy acquisition to educators to improve literacy instruction and positively impact long-term student success.
