As part of the Center for Curriculum and Instruction, the Office of Literacy supports school districts and schools in implementing research-based methods of literacy instruction. The mission of the Office of Literacy is to add value to the efforts of all of Massachusetts's districts and schools to help all students become proficient readers, writers, and communicators. The Office of Literacy's projects are designed to improve educator knowledge and capacity to deliver high quality instruction. By providing literacy leadership and guidance on standards-based curriculum and research-informed literacy practices, the Office of Literacy contributes to the efforts of local districts and schools to ensure that students graduate from high school ready for the rigor of postsecondary education and 21st century careers.
