Statewide Literacy Leadership Team
Iowa's Statewide Literacy Leadership Team is made up of English Language Arts (ELA)/Literacy educators representing AEA literacy consultants, K-12 teachers, teacher leaders, administrators, and college and university specialists in ELA/literacy teacher preparation.

- Facilitating communication and collaboration with the field
- Providing professional learning for the members to build capacity
- Identifying or create resources to help the field implement standards
- Providing a vehicle for the dissemination of identified resources
