As part of the North Coast Regional Action Initiative, OCF volunteers focused on supporting literacy improvement through teacher professional development. The RAI invested in Project GLAD, a program that promotes English language acquisition and academic achievement. More than 100 teachers and administrators have participated. Now, three teachers are working to become the first Project GLAD trainers in the region and will soon be working with teachers throughout Clatsop, Columbia, Tillamook and Lincoln counties. The teachers are Allysa Davis and Courtney Fortenberry, Tillamook School District, and Teresa Varner, Astoria School District. A video developed for the North Coast RAI can be found here.
