​About the KyCL Grant

In Fall of 2019 Kentucky was awarded the Comprehensive Literacy State Development in the amount of $28,695,597.00. Locally the grant is called the Kentucky Comprehensive Literacy Grant (KyCL). Thirty Kentucky districts participate in the grant.                                                              
The goal of the KyCL grant is to support schools in improving the reading and writing achievement for all learners from birth to grade 12 by supporting:  
  • A comprehensive district and school literacy plan
  • Teacher Professional Learning focused on reading and writing
  • Literacy Assessments
  • Literacy Intervention
  • Connections between early childcare providers and schools
  • Connections between community partners and schools
  • Books for children
  • Family literacy training  
KyCL provides professional learning to build teacher capacity in reading and writing instruction across all levels and contents.

KyCL strives to improve student academic outcomes through effective teacher instruction in reading and writing.
