Growing Readers is a K-3 literacy professional learning grant designed and implemented through Georgia’s Regional Educational Service Agencies (RESAs) and administered through the Governor’s Office of Student Achievement (GOSA) and the Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE).

The findings outlined in the most recent evaluation of the 2019-2020 school year indicate that the RESAs are successfully collaborating and delivering consistent, effective professional learning in K-3 literacy instruction to teachers and Candidates. The data also indicate that the RESA Certification Specialists have effectively trained the new Candidates to deliver the same caliber of coaching to their teachers. As a result of Growing Readers, teachers are changing their reading instructional practices to incorporate new strategies such as conferencing with students.
