Elementary Literacy Leaders Network

Virtual Series 2020-2021

The Southwest Ohio Literacy Leaders Network is an opportunity for literacy leaders at the district, building, or teacher level to come together to learn and discuss topics related to literacy.

Participants will:

  • Build background knowledge of each topic
  • Share and receive knowledge and experiences from local schools and districts
  • Discuss and collaborate on essential questions to improve literacy instruction
  • Network with other literacy leaders across the region
  • Receive ongoing support to implement specific activities to lead literacy instruction in your schools


Educators in leadership roles such as curriculum directors, special education directors, building administrators, coaches, and teacher leaders. The content is focused on improving literacy systems at the district and school level, therefore it is highly encouraged that a team attends that includes individuals who have decision-making capacity within the school or district.
