Academic Coaches and Literacy Leaders

Literacy Leaders

full-time classroom teachers targeting improved literacy outcomes for all students

Why Literacy Leaders?

In Robertson County, less than half of all third- through eighth-grade students are proficient in the area of reading.  This statistic is an urgent call to grow better readers.  In response, a focus on improving reading outcomes for students will be supported by Literacy Leaders.


Literacy Leaders are full-time classroom teachers in grades Pre-kindergarten through eighth grade  supporting colleagues in their daily instruction of literacy. 


These leaders will promote Tier I instruction, host a model classroom, and pursue professional growth opportunities for improving their craft.  The expected work of a Literacy Leader complements that of an instructional coach, though both positions have distinct responsibilities.  A stipend will be paid to selected leaders.

It is possible for each Kindergarten through 8th grade school to have a selected Literacy Leader serve in each of the following pertinent grade bands: 

  • Pre-kindergarten – Kindergarten – First Grade
  • Second Grade – Third Grade
  • Fourth Grade – Fifth Grade
  • Sixth Grade - Eighth Grade
