California Literacy Elevation by Accelerating Reading
California Literacy Elevation by Accelerating Reading (Project CLEAR) builds capacity within districts across California to implement and accelerate literacy development. Project CLEAR provides a grant-funded opportunity for educators – including dual language and bilingual educators serving Spanish-speaking students – to deepen expertise in reading intervention via a free graduate-level online coursework training program. Applications are currently being accepted for two professional learning opportunities! For more information, see Project CLEAR’s webpage.
