While we have implemented a range of early literacy strategies in the past, we need a more comprehensive, intensive and coordinated focus on early literacy districtwide to achieve the dramatic gains we need to make.
The Early Literacy Plan was designed to:
- Help us meet the Denver Plan 2020 goal of ensuring that 80% of our students are reading and writing proficiently by third grade.
- Close achievement gaps for our neediest and most disadvantage students
- Address the unique needs of our students who are English language learners.
