Supporting Virtual Learning


After schools moved entirely to distance learning in March, CLI hosted more than 42,000 hours of virtual coaching to support educators as they adjusted to teaching literacy in online classes, provided 1,300 literacy lesson plans and created 350 read aloud and lesson videos to help students stay on track. CLI even developed Spanish and English lesson plans for a New Jersey district’s summer school. By leveraging its already robust online resource,, CLI was able to provide its district partners with vital support to ensure that teachers felt as prepared as possible.

Everyone at CLI contributed enthusiastically, even while dealing with their own strained circumstances. We cannot tell you how grateful and proud we are to our internal team and external partners.
Like you, we are concerned about the pandemic’s impact on children. We know that impact will be disproportionately felt in communities of color, the communities we serve. We need to do more to provide children with access to the opportunities that come with being strong readers and writers. You are reading this because you want to help initiate change and make a difference.

The time for that change is now. Join us in doing more together.

We are a national community of teachers, coaches, district and school leaders, advocates, and donors who, together, can transform instruction so that children can become powerful readers, writers and thinkers.
