The following resources have been developed by the Collaborative Center for Literacy Development to provide Kentucky's educators, legislators, policymakers, curriculum designers, researchers, and administrators with comprehensive research and decision making tools.
The legislation responsible for the inception of the Collaborative Center for Literacy Development outlined a number of charges, one particular mandate was that CCLD would research, develop, and maintain a clearinghouse of literacy resources that can be accessed by educators. The clearinghouse includes a search engine whereby users can input keywords to identify resources. CCLD continues to investigate and compile resources to add to the clearinghouse, ensuring continual viability and growth of the clearinghouse.
