To complement the information gathered on middle school and high school literacy initiatives as reported in "Middle and High School Literacy across the Curriculum" (Task 1.2 Fast Response Project), the Regional Educational Laboratory Southeast (REL-SE) staff conducted a scan of the six southeast states to gather the following information on grades K-3: (1) Does the state have a literacy plan or initiative that addresses grades K-3?; (2) What is the state law or policy? (What action did the state take or how did this initiative start?); (3) Who administers?; (4) Who monitors and evaluates?; (5) Is there funding? By whom? How much?; (6) What are the basic components of the initiative? What are the goals, curriculum, and/or strategies? Does this initiative align with state standards?; and (7) Are there any other states outside the southeast region that have effective literacy initiatives? Information collected on these questions is presented in Table 1 as a supplement to Appendix B in the Task 1.2 Fast Response Project on middle and high school literacy. This scan focused primarily on grades K-3. Excepting the alignment of the initiative with state standards, all of the research questions could be answered based on information collected. Also noted is any information found on new middle and high school initiatives not already reported in Appendix B. The scan did not address achievement gains of statewide initiatives, nor did they restrict themselves only to effective literacy initiatives that have shown achievement gains. Southeast Region NAEP Reading and Writing Scores are appended. (Contains 6 tables and 1 footnote.)
