“Reading has become a state and national priority since the passage of the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) legislation,” said State Schools Superintendent David Stewart. “This conference is a wonderful opportunity to talk about the historic legislation and the most current reading research.”
Scheduled events include national keynote speakers, featured speakers, concurrent sessions, a participant book swap, and daily readings by students.
“I am encouraging all of the participating educators to tap into the knowledge and energy at this conference,” said WVDE Reading/English Language Arts Coordinator Beverly Kingery. “ We know that professional development is a vital part of implementing NCLB.”
