Literacy in Region 8

Child raising hand in classroom
We provide a wide-range of support to our region that is focused on improving literacy as detailed in Ohio's Plan to Raise Literacy Improvement.  Ohio’s language and literacy vision strives to reduce language and  literacy barriers for each learner. Further, it aims to significantly increase the number of learners who develop the language and literacy skills they need for grade-level reading comprehension and thus are prepared for their futures. You can learn more about Ohio's Plan to Raise Literacy Achievement here.
