The goal of the Texas State Literacy Plan (TSLP) is to ensure that every Texas child is strategically prepared for the literacy demands of college or career by high school graduation. To achieve this goal, the plan centers on early language and preliteracy skills for age 0 to school entry and on reading and writing instruction for students in grades K-12. The plan is organized into six components:
Together these components are referred to as the LASERS, and each one contains Action Steps. These steps articulate practices that need to be in place to support the successful implementation of a comprehensive literacy program.
