Striving Readers Comprehensive Literacy

Grant Information and Resources

Nevada is one of the six states across the U.S. that have recently been funded by the Striving Readers Comprehensive Literacy federal initiative. The Primary aim of this grant is to improve the pathway of literacy acquisition for at-risk children and their families.
This is an historic endeavor for the state of Nevada, in that it is the first time that our state has undertaken a completely comprehensive approach to literacy acquisition (birth through grade 12 and beyond).
Four school districts in our state (Clark, Douglas, Lyon, & Washoe) have been chosen to be the literacy trailblazers in this exciting endeavor.
