Local schools get comprehensive literacy grants

 


Press release

HELENA — The Office of Public Instruction announced grant award recipients today under the Montana Comprehensive Literacy State Development Project including Rocky Boy and Chester-Joplin-Inverness schools.

Last year, Montana received a 5-year, $50 million federal Striving Readers Comprehensive State Development Program grant from the U.S. Department of Education which funds MCLSD awards. The purpose is to advance literacy skills using evidence-based practices, strategies and interventions for all children, preschool to grade 12, with an emphasis on disadvantaged children.

In the first year of the grant, CJI is eligible for up to $150,000 and in the second year up to $300,000

Rocky Boy is eligible for up to $187,500 in the first year and up to $375,000 in the second.

OPI conducted six subgrant application workshops across the state during February in Kalispell, Missoula, Helena, Havre, Glendive and Billings for eligible districts. OPI had the participation of 53 districts in the workshops and 43 districts submitted applications.

Eligible district subgrants consisted of a gap analysis of student literacy data to identify where an increased focus in instruction is needed to meet the needs of identified disadvantaged student groups. Through this identification, districts proposed high-quality plans for improvement in teaching and learning that will be monitored through a Continuous Improvement Cycle.

The following districts, followed by eligible funding in the first then second year, also are receiving MCLSD funding:
