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 Public comments can be made through June 15. Comments will be discussed at a state literacy team meeting at the Capitol on June 20.
