Troubling results of the 2019 National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) should trigger action on the part of state-level policymakers. This virtual conference from the National Association of ESEA State Program Administrators (NAESPA) featured presenters from the Comprehensive Center Network who discussed several validated steps states can take in prekindergarten through grade 3 to ensure reading success.  The program included several implementation questions for states to consider for their work, examples of state initiatives to improve literacy outcomes, and additional resources forthcoming from the CCNetwork.
