The Arizona State Legislature annually appropriates $40 million to elementary schools for the purpose of supporting effective reading instruction in grades K–3.

To receive these additional funds, each school district and charter school is annually required to submit to the State Board of Education a literacy plan for improving the reading proficiency of their K–3 pupils. State law requires State Board of Education approval of certain plans before funds are released.

Literacy plans may be submitted annually starting August 8th, and must be completed on or before October 1st via the Move On When Reading application in ADE Connect.

The 2014-2015 Literacy Plan templates are below. Please use these templates to collect your information in order to help you input your information on ADE Connect.
