I, _______________, will accept the position of Literacy Coordinator for the Northeast Louisiana Reading Council as a school building representative. As the coordinator, I will disseminate information as I receive it from my Membership Director or others to encourage professional development and promote literacy in my school. I understand that I if I attend the NELRC’s Fall Meeting on Oct. 9, 2004, I will receive a $25.00 Wal-Mart Gift card if I am teaching in the parishes of Ouachita, West Carroll, Morehouse, Franklin, and Richland and am serving as literacy coordinator for the school participating in the Author’s Visit. These parishes are recipients due to their increase in membership and support of literacy in the 2003-2004 school year. The gift card is a literacy promotion incentive and a thank you from the council for promoting literacy. These parishes will also receive several $25.00 gift cards to purchase door prizes for the promotion of home/school activities.
If my parish was not included or did not meet any of the criteria, I will work toward achieving those goals during the upcoming year.
