Recent legislation places an emphasis on student literacy in the early grades. House Bill 1388 states that "...each teacher who teaches kindergarten through grade three at a school district or nonpublic school and each principal of a public or nonpublic school with kindergarten through grade three shall attend teacher-approved, professional development training that includes topics focused on phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, comprehension, and uses systematic, direct instruction for students in kindergarten through grade three to ensure students obtain necessary early reading skills.
