English Language Arts

The Office of English Language Arts continues to guide and support the work of our schools. Our goal is to support student achievement and create high-quality learning experiences throughout the district. The office believes that educating our students requires children to pursue learning in ways that are culturally engaging and academically rigorous. Therefore, we have designed culturally responsive curricula that embody intentional best practices, interventions, and assessments. With guidance and support, educators will engage in professional development that is driven by authentic student work and analysis of data. The teacher will, then, consistently engage in conversation with the curriculum as informed by; pedagogical research and research-based best practices, student voice, needs, strengths, culture, interests, and the world. We are committed to ensuring students become lifelong learners and are positioned for success.
