The Kentucky Department of Education has begun a new initiative this year to address reading gaps in Kentucky schools. The partnership is supported through American Rescue Plan Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ARP ESSER) funding. 8 teacher’s at Pine Knot Elementary were eager to jump at the chance to join the first Kentucky Reading Academies Cohort, and strengthen reading pedagogy across the school and the district. These teachers are participating in rigorous professional development through the Lexia LETRS program, “grounded in reading research for educators. The reading research represents a body of comprehensive and multi-disciplinary evidence for how students learn to read and write proficiently, why some students struggle and how educators can teach and intervene, if necessary. Through LETRS, teachers gain essential knowledge to master the fundamentals of literacy instruction required to transform student learning and create a more vibrant experience for all young readers.” These teachers will go on to implement these strategies in their own classrooms and serve as reading support teachers for new teachers across Pine Knot Elementary and beyond.
