MCPER is developing the research-based content for the statewide Literacy Achievement Academies and Reading to Learn Academies, part of Texas Gov. Greg Abbott's literacy initiative through the Texas Education Agency. 

The Academies will provide evidence-based professional development targeting kindergarten and grade 1 teachers beginning this summer and grades 2–5 teachers next summer. UT's Institute for Public School Initiatives is heading up the rollout of the training.
