VDOE's Virginia Literacy Act Webpage: Important Virginia Literacy Updates - Summer 2023 (Virginia Department of Education, VDOE)
With the passage of the Virginia Literacy Act (VLA) in the 2022 General Assembly, Virginia is taking the lead nationwide to improve early literacy outcomes for Virginia’s young learners. Through the VLA, the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) will support school divisions through a multi-year effort with tools, resources, technical assistance and funding.
