The Southeast Comprehensive Center (SECC) is working with the South Carolina Department of Education's early childhood staff to provide appropriate school readiness resources and services to early childhood stakeholders and program providers.
SECC will assist SCDE with its efforts to develop a statewide comprehensive literacy plan, including guidance with the state’s multi-tiered system of supports (MTSS) framework.
- Improved materials and assets for SCDE through the establishment of a statewide balanced literacy plan for birth–Grade 12
- Increased knowledge and skills through alignment of statewide literacy needs, MTSS, and Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) requirements
- Increased access to evidence-based practices, strategies, and resources
