Alaska CLSD Project

Increasing Literacy Through Innovation

Reading Across Alaska

After a rigorous and thorough review process, 16 districts were awarded the CLSD Grant.  These districts represent all regions of Alaska, and range in size from the very small (less than 50 students) to the very large (over 1000 students spanning hundreds of miles).  We are so excited to be working with them, and see what they will do!
