Applications are available for the 2016-17 Kentucky Reading Project, an initiative sponsored by the Collaborative Center for Literacy Development that has trained about 3,300 teachers throughout the state since it began in 1999.

The free program is targeted to teachers in grades K-5, who will receive a stipend, professional resources and three hours of graduate credit upon completion of the course in May 2017. University literacy faculty at each of the eight state universities provide instruction at various sites across the state. The National Center for Families Learning provides one day of training during the course.

The application deadline is Feb. 26. Click here for an application, or email KRP Director Cary Pappas for more information.
