• Alabama Literacy Act


    In an effort to improve reading outcomes for students across Alabama, the Alabama  Legislature passed the Alabama Literacy Act, which became law on June 10, 2019.

    This  legislation extends comprehensive information and other guidance for educators to  focus concentrated and systematic efforts to improve the reading skills of all public  school students in early literacy so that every student is reading at or above grade-level by the end of third grade.
