Literacy Plan

  • Teachers and Students Reading


    Jefferson Parish Schools strives to provide the education our students deserve to succeed in life and make our world a better place.  It is our vision in Jefferson Parish for all students to become proficient readers and lifelong learners in order to prepare them for a life of success. 


    The literacy mission of Jefferson Parish Public Schools is to produce proficient life long readers. We will provide students with purposeful literacy instruction by equipping teachers with the skills needed to support literacy development through purposeful professional development focusing on the Science of Reading. Teachers will receive  intentional coaching in order to provide high quality reading instruction to build the foundation for strong readers. Students will be given opportunities to receive differentiated reading instruction that targets their individualized literacy needs. Students will be afforded opportunities to extend their learning beyond the classroom through family engagement and community partnerships.


    Linked below is the plan that teachers, administrators, and support staff, at Ralph J. Bunche Elementary STEM School, have dedicated ourselves to, in order to produce strong readers within our school community.
