As part of a larger equity-focused agenda announced by Mayor Bill de Blasio and Chancellor Carmen Fariña last fall, New York City will put one reading coach, on average, in every elementary school.

The district is currently looking to hire about 100 reading coaches for this September, and officials are planning to fill all the positions by the 2018-19 school year.

The coaches will train and support K-2 teachers in their schools. They'll receive intensive professional development over the summer to get ready for the role. The district is also pushing efforts to get all students taking Algebra 1 by the end of 9th grade and to require all schools to offer computer science courses.
