Investing in teachers yields ongoing returns – every year they teach, these teachers bring their success to a new classroom full of children. So get started today on how you can be using this funding for training through IMSE or other eligible teacher training programs for children with dyslexia.
This year, IMSE received a portion of the $1M allocated through the renewal of the MDE 35d grant by the Michigan State Government. Since the inception of Michigan’s MDE 35d grant initiative in 2020, IMSE has witnessed an overwhelming response from educators eager to receive Structured Literacy training. Over 1600 educators from 180 school districts across Michigan have already leveraged the grant in the last three years to go through IMSE Impact training.

How Funding Can Support IMSE Training
IMSE Impact can be integrated with existing programs or stand on its own for those K-3 students “learning to read” as well as Grades 3+ students “reading to learn” across all tiers of intervention.
Teaching teachers to teach reading more effectively yields immediate returns for schools and districts. Effective instruction means:
- More successful students, and thus more students “reading to learn” beginning grade 4
- Fewer students needing IEPs, therefore, budgets stretch farther
