LiNK presented its final report in December 2021 to the KSBE: Literacy Network of Kansas Implementation to Impact 2018-2021 (PDF) - updated March 21, 2022
LiNK was established in 2017 with a federal Striving Readers Comprehensive Literacy award. The Kansas State Department of Education (KSDE) awarded eight grant recipients in June 2018, representing 32 school districts. The intent of this award was to significantly impact birth through grade twelve literacy for Kansas schools and families, particularly for traditionally underserved populations, which by federal guidelines includes students with disabilities, English Learners, and students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds. Each district shared strategies which proved impactful in meeting the literacy needs of their communities in the LiNK Impact Stories below. Please click on each district’s link to see their story.
