Literacy is the core of the curriculum in our schools. Based on this premise, we have launched a multi-year initiative to continually improve our approach to literacy. As we seek cutting edge methods and well-articulated goals, we continue to better support our students. Our literacy initiative is a response to the following needs:
- Common district approaches to literacy instruction
- Further support for struggling learners
- Clarification of benchmarks
- Development of data analysis to further inform instruction
Our overarching goal for the initiative is the development of a comprehensive literacy program that promotes improved achievement for all children. We emphasize a focus on strategies to improve proficiency among students who struggle and expand approaches to differentiate instruction for those students already proficient or exceeding standards.
