North Dakota's literacy plan to be updated; comments sought
BISMARCK -- The North Dakota Department of Public Instruction is seeking public comments on the state's literacy plan that is being updated this summer.
The plan provides a framework that addresses literacy skills for children from birth to grade 12.
In 2017, North Dakota received a federal grant through the Striving Readers Comprehensive Literacy program, which requires the state literacy plan be updated annually, according to DPI's website.
In March, a group of 10 educators, or a state literacy team, began drafting an updated plan. A draft can be found at www.nd.gov/dpi/SchoolStaff/AS/SRCL/NDCSLP. Public comments can be made through June 15. Comments will be discussed at a state literacy team meeting at the Capitol on June 20.
