Literacy Organization Capacity Initiative (LOCI)

NORC’s Literacy Organization Capacity Initiative (LOCI) provides tools and supports to schools and districts to build their internal capacity for growth in literacy teaching and learning. Using data-driven strategic planning, LOCI helps instructional leadership teams to design, implement, monitor, and sustain powerful professional learning systems.

LOCI Approach

LOCI measures district literacy capacity against national benchmarks and high performing schools in order to identify and deliver professional learning opportunities for teachers and instructional leaders. This approach builds instructional, community, and school organizational capacity by integrating a strategically resourced literacy vision at the district level with increased professional expertise and ownership throughout the system.
