Its mission is to provide all students in Grades K-12 with the knowledge and skills needed for success in the workforce and/or postsecondary studies (college and career ready).

Alabama Reading Initiative (ARI)

The Alabama Reading Initiative (ARI) is a statewide K-12 initiative committed to supporting the development of high-quality instruction that will prepare all students wi​th the literacy skills needed to meet or exceed grad​e-level standards. The goal of the ARI is to significantly improve reading instruction and ultimately achieve 100% literacy among public school students.

Each summer teacher candidates enrolled in EDC 302 - Introduction to Low Incidence Populations and EDC 341 - Transitions of K-12 Students spend four weeks assisting special education teachers and working one-on-one with students who have been identified with special needs. UAH faculty and classroom teachers monitor and mentor teacher candidates as they interact with the students.
