Early Literacy Professional Learning Grant

Background Information

The Early Literacy Professional Learning Grant was awarded to MAISA in September 2016. The grant is designed to work with Coaches across Michigan at the ISD/LEA/RESA level to study the essential practices to get Michigan students reading at a proficient 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, and Gogebic-Ontonagon ISD.
