The Comprehensive Literacy Plan is a resource for parents, caregivers, teachers, and administrators all along the birth to college and career continuum. The Plan is based on SAILS—a systems approach where literacy achievement for all students is expected. Like a sail harnessing a wind, the approach connects the efforts of all stakeholders to improve literacy outcomes.

How to Get Started

  1. Download the Comprehensive Literacy Plan. Read through the Plan to gain an understanding of the scope and depth. It is organized by the SAILS systems approach:
  2. Refer to the Template (pages 57-62)—which outlines the goals and outcomes, and professional development modules—to help guide your district or school’s own Plan.

  3. Conduct a Gap Analysis. As outlined in the template, the Gap Analysis is the first action step toward implementing a Plan in your school or district. This step will identify the opportunities for growth in a tiered instructional system and areas of focus for action planning. The Gap Analysis will help you prioritize your Plan.
