Last fall, AIM began working with educators in 10 Louisiana schools as part of the state's K-2 Literacy Coaching Pilot. More than 161 educators participated in Pathways to Proficient Reading as part of the program allowing teachers across the state how to dig deeper, says Jane Anne Watson, the pilot’s Northern Louisiana Literacy Coordinator. “Now they know that you have to dig deeper and how to do it.”

AIM Pathways is one of four literacy training providers approved by Louisiana for the statewide roll out of it's Literacy Foundations Training program which as part of Act 108  requires early literacy training based on the Science of Reading for K-3 teachers of reading, math, science, and/or social studies as well as principals and assistant principals of schools that include the K-3 grade levels.
