Reading Language Arts

Welcome to K-12 Language Arts!


The Reading/Language Arts unit provides support for schools and districts to close the achievement gap, and to achieve high standards of excellence in language arts.

Our top priority is to provide our schools and districts with knowledge and resources in the most current practices, trends and guidelines for Reading/Language arts. We provide high-quality technical assistance in the form of face-to-face trainings, blended model workshops, online webinars, on-site district consulting and professional development, and in the compiling and distribution of useful tools and resources.

We are excited to introduce you to the many services we provide to teachers, coaches and administrators.

Increasing student achievement in literacy is what we're all about. Please take a few minutes to explore the many links this site offers.
