ILA Board Forms Credentialing Steering Committee

Sep 15, 2016

In early 2016, ILA commissioned a study to explore the market feasibility of developing credentials for school-based literacy professionals. The study showed potential for development of a literacy coach credential, and in July the ILA Board of Directors approved funding to conduct additional analysis.

A new, Board-appointed Credentialing Steering Committee will liaise with the Board, appoint and oversee discrete task forces, and work with ILA staff and consultants to align the program with ILA’s advocacy for professional certification based on rigorous requirements and robust preparation. The members of the Credentialing Steering Committee are

  • William Teale, Chair
  • Shannon Fortner, Staff Liaison
  • Gwynne Ash
  • Diane Barone
  • Rita Bean
  • Jean-Claude Brizard
  • Laurie Elish-Piper
  • Nancy Gannon
  • Diane Kern
  • Stephen Peters
  • Vicki Risko
  • Jackie Wilson
