Literacy

Mission

K-12 Literacy is committed to increasing student achievement through the development and promotion of literacy leadership, curriculum documents and resources, and comprehensive professional development that supports standards-based instruction.


Social Studies

Mission

The mission of Social Studies education is to teach students the content knowledge, intellectual skills, and civic values necessary for fulfilling the duties of citizenship in a participatory democracy. Social Studies teachers assist students in developing the ability to make informed and reasoned decisions for the public good as citizens of a culturally diverse, democratic society in an interdependent world.


Library Services

Our curriculum-based school libraries are crucial in the role of meeting individual student's literacy needs. Librarians, in collaboration with classroom teachers, teach specific library skills. These skills include a wide range of research strategies for utilizing print and electronic resources.
