 Literacy


Teacher reading a book to students sitting on the floor

The Georgia Department of Education is committed to our goal of increasing literacy outcomes for ALL of Georgia’s students. Georgia is currently experiencing a unique synergy around literacy with several developments that have impacted literacy policy and practice statewide. The Georgia Early Literacy Act (House Bill 538), Georgia’s new K-12 English Language Arts Standards (implementation SY 2025-26), and Georgia’s dyslexia efforts (Senate Bill 48) are all important initiatives that will help guide Georgia’s literacy journey over the next few years.  This webpage is designed to keep stakeholders up t​o date on literacy policy and practice in Georgia.
