To encourage children and families to read throughout the summer, MetaMetrics – an educational research group that partners with the Kentucky Department of Education – offers the free research-based tool “Find a Book, Kentucky.”
This year’s theme for the annual KYReads initiative, a collaboration of the Kentucky Department of Education and the Kentucky Department for Libraries and Archives, is “Build a Better World” and focuses on STEM activities.
Library media specialists, teachers work with public libraries to promote summer reading.
The Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) publishes Kentucky Teacher to communicate directly with the state’s 40,000 public school teachers. The stories of this award-winning publication include news, perspectives, and practical, workable ideas for guiding students to higher levels of achievement.
