Local Literacy Plan

The Minnesota State Statute 120B.12 literacy goal states that every child be reading at or above grade level no later than the end of grade 3, including English learners, and that teachers provide comprehensive, scientifically based reading instruction.

School District 197 is committed to the goal of all students reading at or above grade level by the end of third grade. As part of Minnesota State Statute, a local literacy plan is to be developed and posted for all stakeholders for all public schools. Our local literacy plan has been developed and continues to be revised through the collaboration of educators throughout the district.
