    The Purpose of our Early Literacy Strategic Plan:


    The Early Literacy Strategic Plan sets an intentional district-wide focus for our K-3 students. The implementation of our literacy plan will build capacity in both district and school level leadership to ensure our literacy moves impact our literacy metrics and that efforts are owned and understood at the classroom level.  In addition, our plan will facilitate leadership practices that scale efforts across the district and into the classrooms in the most cohesive, collaborative, and systematic way and build a shared common understanding, language, and practice for early literacy instruction that yields results for students. 


    In order to achieve this goal, JP Schools Teaching and Learning will invest in the following shifts:

    • Implement Tier I curriculum with fidelity. 

    • Conduct ongoing, job-embedded professional development through Instructional Leadership Team (ILT) and cluster meetings. 

    • Use walkthrough/observation evidence to provide timely, actionable feedback.
