Comprehensive Literacy State Development (CLSD) Technical Assistance

Overview

For the Comprehensive State Literacy Development (CLSD) program, Synergy has designed and maintains a public website, and develops resources and professional learning modules for state education agencies (SEAs) and local education agencies (LEAs). Synergy also designed a secure technical assistance hub and reporting portal for CLSD grantees. Supported by the U.S. Department of Education, the CLSD program aims to advance literacy skills (including preliteracy skills), reading, and writing for children from birth through grade 12—particularly those who live in poverty, are English learners, and experience disabilities. Synergy organized and facilitated numerous virtual literacy-focused topical meetings featuring subject matter experts, guided resource reviews, and networking opportunities for CLSD grantees and stakeholders.

Impact

SEA and LEA leaders across the country use CLSD professional learning modules as turnkey educator learning tools so they can support literacy among children of different ages (from preliteracy through secondary school) and backgrounds (those with disabilities and those who are learning English) and engage families. The CLSD grantee site includes a customized knowledge management system for reporting and submitting grantee progress on performance measures and budget data to the U.S. Department of Education.
