AN ACT CONCERNING THE ALIGNMENT OF THE COORDINATED STATE-WIDE READING PLAN WITH THE STATE'S TWO-GENERATIONAL INITIATIVE
SUMMARY: This act (1) requires the State Department of Education to include, in its statewide reading plan, the alignment of reading instruction with the two-generational initiative and (2) allows the Office of Early Childhood, in its two–generational initiative and within available appropriations, to consider the alignment of state and local support systems around the statewide reading plan for students in kindergarten to grade three.
By law, the reading plan must contain various research-driven strategies and frameworks for effective reading instruction. The two-generational school readiness and workforce development initiative promotes early childhood care and education, health, and workforce readiness and self-sufficiency across two generations in the same household.
