Path to Reading Excellence in School Sites

Path to Reading Excellence in School Sites (PRESS) is a framework that structures literacy achievement in grades K-5 within contexts of multi-tiered systems of support (MTSS) or Response to Intervention (RtI). The primary goal of PRESS is to work with teachers and administrators to establish school-based systems and practices for all K-5 students to become capable readers.

Upcoming events and workshops

We offer one-day events and workshops to help you stay current on the best practices in literacy education backed by research.
