Act 20

For more information, see the DPI site WISCONSIN READS.

Act 20 initiates a statewide adherence to science-based early literacy instruction to address low reading proficiency across the state. The law modifies existing statutes and creates two new entities that specify the types of reading curriculum and instruction that schools receiving public funding must provide to pupils in grades kindergarten to 3. 

A lot of this seems confusing and we understand that support is needed. WASCD partnered with DPI to bring more information to light through an hour long webinar. You can watch the recorded webinar below and click the button to follow along with DPI's slides.
