Literacy for ME is the Maine Department of Education's Statewide Literacy Plan. The plan, originally launched in 2012 and updated in 2022, sets a vision for the Department of Education's efforts to support strong literacy achievement and provides guidance and resources for Maine's public schools and community programs as they engage in ongoing literacy education efforts. Grounded in research-based literacy practices and organized around key components central to building comprehensive literacy programs, Literacy for ME recognizes the increasing demands for a variety of literacy skills necessary across all disciplines, careers, and our democracy as well as for advancing culturally responsive practices.
