Foundational Literacy Skills Plan
In 2021, Tennessee Governor Bill Lee signed into law the Tennessee Literacy Success Act, which amended Tennessee Code Annotated Title 49, Chapters 1, 5, and 6 relative to literacy. The law outlines a bold policy framework to improve literacy rates in Tennessee.
The law requires school districts to develop a Foundational Literacy Skills Plan to articulate locally driven solutions to improve literacy outcomes for students. These plans must be submitted to the Tennessee Department of Education for approval.
