Implementing the Right to Read in the Near North DSB, ON

May 12, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm MDT


The Near North District School Board has been a trailblazing board in Ontario with regard to the recommendations in the Right to Read report – screening, structured literacy. Joining us will be Kara Macie – Lead Speech Language Pathologist, Steve Krause and Christopher Walking – K-12 Student Achievement and Well-Being Principals.

In this episode of the Spotlight Series, the team will share some of the challenges and successes in implementation and their journey of implementation towards a district-wide adoption of literacy practices in alignment with the Science of Reading. They will also discuss their timeline of the work, intentional moves, resources used across the system, as well what they believe their next steps to be.

We will discuss the stepping stones identified such as:

  • Acknowledging the readiness and urgency

  • Appreciate the depth and complexity of this work

  • Build your experts; teacher voice along the way – including providing opportunities for vicarious and mastery experiences

  • Tapping into system expertise across department silos and the importance of classroom and school embedded professional learning.
