Texas Reading Academies
HB 3, passed by the Texas Legislature in June 2019, requires all kindergarten through third grade teachers and administrators to participate in the Texas Reading Academies by 2023. Lewisville ISD believes in a balanced approach to literacy instruction. Therefore, we will support staff by offering Reading Academies to LISD Staff at each campus during the 2022-2023 school year for the following instructional roles:
- Kinder teachers
- 2nd grade teachers
- Dyslexia Interventionists
- Special Education Classroom Teachers
- Campus Administrators (Principal or Assistant Principal)
- Any K-3 teachers that were not enrolled during the 2020-2022 school years
LISD has chosen the Blended Model which is online modules led by LISD Cohort Leaders to allow for personalization of training at district level.
