Literacy Planning Support

In 2022 ISBE recognized the need to gather feedback from stakeholders on the needs of teachers, schools, and districts to ensure they are meeting the literacy development needs of all children.

In the Fall of 2022, the Region 9 Comprehensive Center (R9CC) supported the Illinois State Board of Education to co-plan and co-facilitate a stakeholder engagement meeting which gathered feedback on the needs of teachers, schools, and districts to ensure they are meeting the literacy development needs of all students. Following the meeting, R9CC synthesized themes and information from the different stakeholders present at the meeting. R9CC will presented a report to ISBE from this synthesis in December 2022. ISBE is currently determining next steps to be taken and what literacy supports are needed in the region.
