Program Overview
Understanding the Literacy Initiative

The goal of the Texas State Literacy Plan is to ensure that every Texas child is strategically prepared for the literacy demands of college and/or career by high school graduation. To achieve this goal, the plan centers on the integration and alignment of early language and pre-literacy skills for age 0 to school entry and on reading and writing instruction for students in grades K-12.

The Campus Based Leadership Team (CBLT) participates in the Texas State Literacy Plan (TSLP) online course, whose purpose is to provide support to campuses as they move toward full implementation of a comprehensive literacy plan.

LASERS on Literacy
Course content is organized around the implementation of Action Steps within six modules: Leadership, Assessment, Standards-based Instruction, Effective Instructional Framework, Reporting and Accountability, and Sustainability and includes access to appropriate state resources.
Literacy Line
A Literacy Line is a vertical collaborative among feeder-pattern campuses within ECISD including: prekindergarten, elementary, middle, and high schools, and their associated Early Childhood Education providers.
The Texas Literacy Initiative at our campus is supported by the CBLT, District TLI Program Manager, TLI Coordinator, and TLI State Liaison.

The purpose of the Texas Literacy Initiative (TLI) grant is to improve school readiness and success in the areas of language and literacy for disadvantaged students in targeted school districts, including their associated Early Childhood Education (ECE) providers, who will use the model of Literacy Lines to implement the Texas State Literacy Plan (TSLP).
