Literacy initiative launch in Lewiston next week

Education Commissioner Stephen Bowen and Lee Anne Larsen, literacy specialist for the Maine DOE, will be joined by school and community participants for the launch of Literacy for ME, the Maine Department of Education’s birth-to-adult literacy initiative, next week.

You can see a preview of the new plan on the project’s website. Please join us for our public announcement of Literacy for ME at the Lewiston Public Library on Tuesday, September 11 at 1 p.m.

You can watch the event live online at http://stateofmaine.adobeconnect.com/pk20291112/. Please login as a guest and make sure your speakers are turned on.

In order to raise community awareness of the literacy initiative, the Maine DOE will be holding regional meetings. We strongly encourage you to attend one of the regional kick-off meetings. Please register your community literacy team by September 17.
