Early Literacy Resources

Recently, the MI Legislature enacted House Bill #4822 to address and improve third grade reading proficiency for all students in the state.  As a result, a team from Eaton RESA has been working with 25 local district administrators and staff representing general education, special education and Title I services to provide support and resources to parents and teachers.
