Comprehensive Literacy State Development (CLSD)


To create the utmost impact on student achievement, North Dakota is proposing five specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and timely objectives to achieve its two overall goals for the CLSD program. To support literacy development for children who have previously been under-served, the department has designed a thorough implementation and coaching support model to address structural changes in comprehensive literacy instruction that will have lasting, sustainable impact on educators.
