Standards for the Preparation of Literacy Professionals 2017

The newly revised Standards for the Preparation of Literacy Professionals 2017 (Standards 2017) is almost complete and, once approved, will replace the Standards for Reading Professionals—Revised 2010 (Standards 2010). These new standards will influence the preparation of literacy professionals across the United States.

Beginning April 17, 2017, through May 8, 2017, ILA will accept public comments on the draft standards for three roles: Reading/Literacy Specialist, Literacy Coach, and Literacy Coordinator/Supervisor.

Step 1: Review the 2017 standards for all three specialized literacy roles or individual roles.

Step 2: Share your comments in the survey.
