Reading Pilot Information
Region 12 Schools is committed to ensuring that every child can read, at grade level, by 3rd grade. The Connecticut legislature passed the "Right to Read" legislation in June 2021, PA 21-2. In this legislation, the state was required to establish a literacy center tasked with overseeing and approving district literacy programs.
A committee of Region 12 teachers attended presentations, delivered by state approved comprehensive literacy program publishers. The district is piloting two programs, myView and ARC Core. Each literacy program aligns to the CT Core Standards and includes both the Science of Reading and Writing. Details regarding each program are available below.
