Literacy Plan

The New Prague Area School District is committed to ensuring that all students can read at or above grade level by the end of third grade.

Statement of Goals and Objectives

Our Literacy Plan

  • Our high-stakes testing ensures that all teachers know and understand the importance of providing a high quality literacy program that is rigorous and relevant and providing the appropriate differentiation/research based interventions when needed to ensure student success. The two main resources used include SUPERKIDS by Rowland Reading Foundation and Reading Street by Scott Foresman.
  • All staff will participate in planned, job-embedded, data-driven professional development to ensure best-practice instruction is aligned with the Minnesota Academic Standards and delivered to our students.
  • Every child in our Kindergarten through third grade will receive between 90 to 120 minutes of reading instruction a day.
  • Formative and assessments (normed, screening, diagnostic) will be used to identify and match students to research-based interventions.
  • Assessment information will be shared with teachers/parents/guardians. Throughout the year, feedback in the form of progress monitoring will inform and assist learning at school and at home.
