Reading Specialist Service

Districts participating in this service hire a Reading Specialist through CESA #11 to work directly with the local administrative team and be identified as the District Reading Specialist.

The District Reading Specialist (17 License) serves as a leader and coordinator in the development and implementation of the school district's literacy programs. Current educational initiatives, such as Educator Effectiveness, Early Literacy, FORWARD, ACCESS, ACT assessments, and the focus on State Rule Standard C, have identified a growing need for district-level support in the area of reading curriculum leadership.

These offerings are available through In District Services.  For details, contact Gretchen Cipriano, Assistant ISPD Director, at
