$180 Million Awarded to Six States for Comprehensive Literacy Program Aimed at Children, Birth-Grade 12
Posted by Maisha Meminger - On September 14, 2011 (EST)
More than $180 million in grants were awarded to six states through the Striving Readers Comprehensive Literacy Program, which helps states pursue a comprehensive approach to improving literacy outcomes for all children -- birth through grade 12, including limited-English-proficient students and students with disabilities.
The Striving Readers program requires states to use at least 15 percent of their grant funds to serve children from birth through age 5, while 40 percent must go toward supporting students in grades K-5, and 40 percent for middle and high schools with an equitable distribution between the two. The remaining five percent can be set aside for state administration of the grants.
