Oswego County Literacy Initiative (OCLI)
The Oswego County Literacy Initiative (OCLI) is a collaboration between all nine Oswego County school districts, the CNYOC Teacher Center, CiTi BOCES. The collaboration is the result of hours of soul-searching discussions between school district superintendents, other district administrators and CiTi BOCES leadership on how to best address the ever-challenging needs of Oswego County students and families.
Data collection will be an integral component of the initiative. Tools such as teacher surveys, pre-post questionnaires, administrator and teacher interviews, assessment data, attendance/behavior data will be used to measure changes in teacher practice, attitudes and beliefs about effective reading instruction and the learning outcomes of the students. The results will be used to make informed, data-based decisions on professional development, teacher support and the initiative’s overall level of impact on reading achievement throughout Oswego County.
