Welcome to the Reading and Literacy pages of the SDE! Literacy – the ability to read, write, speak, and listen effectively – is the door to learning, both in school and in life. To experience literature, embrace history, engage in research, or understand the principles of the universe, we must first be literate.

Here you will find information for RSA (Reading Sufficiency Act), Reading Research as well as resources and information for educators, parents, and students.

Professional Development

The Office of Instruction is available to provide additional professional development to teachers in their local area, either face-to-face, through video conference, or webinar (point-to-point/distance learning) technology.

LETRS Training

Language Essentials for the Teachers of Reading and Spelling (LETRS) is a comprehensive, professional development that responds to the growing need for high-quality support for literacy educators. More than any other professional development curriculum, LETRS prepares educators for the challenging work of teaching literacy. Beyond the routines and lesson plans of adopted reading programs, it's important that educators understand the language structures they're teaching, how students learn to read and write, and the reasons that some children fail to learn. Oklahoma State Department of Education is hosting several sites for LETRS training late spring and summer. You must attend each day of each session to receive a certificate of completion. Spaces are limited and registration is open until slots are filled. LETRS training honors RSA requirements for teacher literacy professional development.
