Alaska State Literacy Blueprint


Vision: The State Board of Education and Early Development promotes literacy initiatives for all Alaska children from birth to graduation. EED works collaboratively with communities, other state agencies, technical assistance providers, early care and learning providers, families, and resource and referral agencies and other statewide partners to provide information and technical assistance that ensures the Alaska Birth to Graduation State Literacy Blueprint is implemented so all Alaska children are able to read for meaning and express themselves both orally and in writing. Regional and local collaboration focuses on ensuring that the blueprint is supported and successfully implemented.

Quick View of Leadership:

In order to be effective, leadership at all levels must be informed and collaborative. The blueprint addresses the following areas of leadership at the state, district, and school/community levels:

  • Organizational culture
  • Allocation of resources
  • Alignment and coherence of efforts
  • Building capacity for effective implementation
