AIM Pathways for Louisiana
Louisiana Literacy Mission
Act 108 requires early literacy training based on the science of reading and includes extensive training in the five components of reading: phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. Knowledge of the science of reading provides teachers and administrators with the “why” behind best practices and strategies that are most effective when teaching students to read and supporting struggling readers.
Louisiana schools and school systems must begin requiring teachers and administrators to complete at least one approved professional development course beginning with the 2023-2024 school year.
AIM is thrilled to be the premier provider of Literacy Foundations Training in Louisiana offering Pathways to Literacy Leadership and Pathways to Proficient Reading training in fulfillment of Act 108. AIM has also been selected to support education leaders the state Department of Education as well as well as teacher education faculty at Louisiana higher education institutions through Pathways to Literacy Leadership.
