The purpose of the Texas Literacy Initiative (TLI) grant is to improve school readiness and success in the areas of language and literacy for disadvantaged students in targeted school districts, including their associated Early Childhood Education ECE providers, who will use the model of Literacy Lines to implement the Texas State Literacy Plan (TSLP).

2. Improve the performance of participating K-2 students on early reading assessments.
3. Increase the percentage of participating students who meet or exceed proficiency on the state English language arts assessments in grades 3 through 12.
4. Increase the use of data and data analysis to inform all decision making in participating districts, campuses, classrooms, and early learning settings.
5. Increase the implementation of effective literacy instruction through Literacy Lines.
