Texas Center for the Advancement of Literacy and Learning

Texas Center for the Advancement of Literacy and Learning

To provide a centralized resource for collaborative networking, knowledge, and service for those meeting the literacy needs of adult learners and their families.

Texas Center for the Advancement of Literacy and Learning  (TCALL) was created in 1989 by the Board of Regents at Texas A&M University with the purpose of helping to reduce the incidence of adult illiteracy in Texas. As the state literacy resource center, TCALL’s purpose has evolved to responding to the needs of those who provide literacy services to Texas’ adult education and family literacy learners. The literacy directory and hotline provide access to adults who are interested in earning their high school equivalency certificate, learning to speak English or learning to read.

The primary funded project at TCALL 2013- 2014 was the Adult Literacy Clearinghouse Project, an adult education state leadership activity funded first under Texas Education Agency, then under Texas Workforce Commission beginning in fall 2013.

In June 2014 and again in June 2016, the Texas Workforce Commission selected TCALL through competitive procurement processes to be funded as the statewide Adult Education and Literacy Professional Development (PD) Center. In that capacity, TCALL designs, delivers, and supports high-quality professional development training to adult education and literacy educators across Texas.
