English Language Arts
The District designed a comprehensive K-12 English Language Arts (ELA) Program that provides a vertical alignment and consistent approach to instruction in English Language Arts for all students. The process used to develop the ELA curriculum followed the district model for curriculum analysis, design, implementation and evaluation that was developed in 2013. This model involves each grade representative K-12, together with administration in a committee format, to develop and maintain ongoing professional oversight of the ELA curriculum, making committee recommendations to the district. Resources for the ELA instruction are both digital and hard copy.
The current text book series used to support the district's curriculum K-5,published by Pearson is Reading Streets, Sidewalks and Cornerstone. Grades 6-12 text book series supporting the district curriculum is Pearson publisher Prentice Hall Literature and Keystone. Each of these series have multiple digital supporting resources for the student, the teacher and the parent.
If you have any questions in accessing the resources to support your child in ELA, contact your child's teacher and or building principal for a comprehensive list of resources. If you have further questions, contact the assistant superintendent.
