Literacy funding provided

The province is providing $61,217 to support the efforts of School District 91 to improve their students’ literacy skills.

The Literacy Innovation Grants support innovative literacy initiatives and practices in Kindergarten to Grade 12. School districts will receive the same funding levels as last year and will continue to be given the flexibility to support innovative literacy practices in the K-12 system, or to support District Literacy Plan development.

The Nechako Lakes School District has used previous funding to support District Literacy Plan Development and PALS (Parents as Literacy Supporters), while continuing to provide professional learning opportunities for teachers around literacy instruction, assessment and effective strategies.

Making these grants available for a fifth year means districts can expand literacy initiatives. Last year some districts developed summer reading and family literacy programs, while others focused their efforts on assessment and intervention projects for younger learners.
