“Literacy skills lay the foundation upon which every individual’s education rests. When a learner receives the necessary tools to develop strong language and literacy skills, he or she becomes able to achieve personal autonomy and pursue aspirations.”
--Ohio’s Plan to Raise Literacy Achievement, January 2020
Improving literacy skills will also improve…academic achievement in all subjects, attendance, behavior, graduation rates, employability, earning potential, community involvement, life expectancy, self-confidence, and self-esteem…all leading to happier, healthier lives. Literacy is for life!
The Miami County ESC Literacy Team MISSION is to improve language and literacy outcomes for all students in Miami County by supporting each district in developing and implementing a successful literacy framework.
