School-BasedLiteracy Planning

Professional Development Offering

Does your school need a literacy improvement plan? Keys to Literacy’s school literacy planning model can help your school develop a long-term literacy plan aligned with a Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) model of instruction.

This model places your building-based literacy planning team at the center of the process, guided by two plan leaders (a building administrator and a literacy plan coordinator) who lead the planning efforts and write the final plan. Your team will access information about the process, including documents and surveys, through our online platform. A Keys to Literacy consultant provides an initial review of the process during a half-day, kick-off workshop with the plan leaders. Additional consulting support is available by the hour to provide guidance during the process.

The first task of the plan leaders is to assemble a literacy planning team with members who represent the stakeholders in the school: administrators, classroom teachers, and specialists.

The model addresses six literacy planning components: (1) assessment and data use, (2) Tier I core instruction, (3) Tiers II and III intervention instruction, (4) professional development planning, (5) scheduling and grouping, (6) literacy resources.

The building literacy planning team follows these stages:

  • Initiation Stage
  • Self-Assessment – Current Practices
  • Goals and Action Planning 
  • Writing the Plan 
  • Implementation Plan
