MCRR Advisory Board

The MCRR Advisory Board provides input to MCRR leadership on how to most effectively enhance our work to ensure that all Minnesota students become better and more engaged readers. The Board is composed of a diverse group of stakeholders that includes university faculty members and leaders, educational administrators, literacy coaches, and community members who are concerned about quality literacy instruction in K-12 schools.
