K-12 English / Language Arts Mission Statement

The mission of the K-12 English Language Arts Office is to provide instructional leadership in English/Language Arts that supports district school communities in preparing students for college and career. We collaborate with teachers and other stakeholders to build their capacity to respond to student needs by providing standards-based curriculum documents and assessments and professional development in effective research-based literacy strategies, so that all students graduate with the requisite communication skills to become contributing members of society.


K-12 English / Language Arts Vision Statement

We believe that providing every student with a rigorous curriculum designed to advance students through the grades and master the Common Core State Standards in reading, writing, speaking, listening, and language will prepare them for the complexities and increasing demands of the 21st Century. From Kindergarten through grade 12, students will increasingly:

  • assume responsibility for their learning
  • build strong content knowledge
  • respond to the varying demands of audience, task, purpose, and discipline
  • comprehend as well as critique
  • value evidence
  • use technology and digital media strategically and capably
  • come to understand other perspectives and cultures
