Grant Description
Grants to Massachusetts school districts and educational collaboratives to support professional development and training for a short-term literacy program intended for struggling first-grade students. Funding may be used to pay for training, ongoing evaluation, and related expenses. Regional training sites may request funds for training teacher leaders, teacher leader affiliation fees, and teacher leader institute travel.

This state-funded competitive grant program provides funds to support the operation of Reading Recovery training sites.

Priorities:

This grant supports:

  • Districts with a Reading Recovery program that includes ongoing professional development support in early literacy intervention for implementing teachers; and ongoing documentation and evaluation of results, including subsequent referral to special education, retention, or long-term services.
  • Educational collaboratives, along with school districts that are Reading Recovery training sites, to support a Reading Recovery regional training site for ongoing professional development in early literacy intervention for implementing teachers; and ongoing documentation and evaluation of results, including subsequent referral to special education, retention, or long-term services.

Competitive priority will be given to districts and schools in chronically underperforming status and the Strategic Transformation Region.
