Literacy Coaching


Upskilling current literacy coaches and building the pipeline of educators interested in pursuing a literacy coach role is critically important to meet the Department’s literacy goals to set all students on a path to learn, graduate, and succeed. The Department partnered with the Florida Center for Reading Research (FCRR) and the University of Florida (UF) Lastinger Center to develop and deploy a Literacy Coach Endorsement Program aligned to the FDOE Literacy Coaching Definition, Domains and Standards (PDF).

Florida’s Literacy Coach Endorsement Program (PDF) will be rolled out gradually and will first prioritize Reading Achievement Initiative for Scholastic Excellence (RAISE) schools. The Department will launch the FCRR Literacy Coach Endorsement Program in Summer 2022 for literacy coaches serving RAISE intensive support schools. The UF Lastinger Center Literacy Coach Endorsement Program is slated to be deployed in Fall 2022.
