Mississippi educators share a deep commitment to supporting student literacy gains, which includes dedicated participation in the LETRS© (Language Essentials for Teachers of Reading and Spelling) science of reading professional learning course.
The Office of Elementary Education and Reading, Division of Literacy, would like to celebrate these educators in their efforts to become qualified teachers of reading by recognizing schools where 80% of teachers and administrators have completed the LETRS© professional learning course. Any school that has been positively impacted by this practice change, regarding educator attitude and confidence levels, school culture, and student literacy achievement, will be recognized as a “Science of Reading School.”
To apply for recognition, complete the Mississippi Science of Reading Survey by Friday, April 30th. While completing the survey for your school, indicate teachers and administrators who have completed LETRS training, and tell us how reading instruction and your school culture have been impacted!
