The letter below is from the Department of Education Director, Dr. Bradley Buck. Dr. Buck's letter outlines the new guidelines to help all students be proficient in reading by the time they reach third grade. Dr. Buck addresses many steps in his letter and in italics, you will see how the primary and intermediate staff and administration are addressing those steps. CPU’s comments and implementation steps will be in italics.
Also below, is the PowerPoint that was shared at the January PTO meeting. Individual information for each child will come home with Kindergarten through Fifth grade report cards and will be discussed at parent teacher conferences at the end of February.
The district will continue to communicate information about the Early Literacy Initiative as we receive it.
