Diamond District Selected for Comprehensive Literacy State Program Grant

In November 2020, the district had applied for a competitive grant called the Comprehensive Literacy State Development Grant. Today, DESE (the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education) released the districts and buildings that were selected. I am excited to announce that all three of our buildings have been selected for this grant and work.

Services offered to us:

  • school-level literacy assets/needs assessments
  • development of school/district comprehensive literacy plans
  • in-classroom coaching on reading foundations instruction
  • job-embedded professional development on all aspects of literacy
  • summer institutes for LEA literacy leaders
  • support in implementing train-the-trainer model professional development
  • early childhood literacy professional development and support

Here are the links to DESE that were released today.
