Early Literacy Professional Learning Grant

Background Information

Background Information

The Early Literacy Professional Learning Grant was awarded to MAISA in September 2016 as a 2 year grant. The grant was designed to work with Coaches across Michigan at the ISD/LEA/RESA level to learn essential practices to get Michigan students reading at a profecient level. It is our goal to meet with these Coaches and allow them opportunities to hear from content experts from the field, as well as, network, learn and grow with other ISD Early Literacy Coaches. 

The grant is a collaborative effort between the Michigan Department of Education, MAISA, Gogebic Ontonogan Intermediate School District, and Michigan Virtual.
