BAPS to participate in nationwide Read Across America week to support ongoing literacy model Feb. 28 - March 4
In support of its ongoing literacy efforts, Broken Arrow Public Schools is joining school districts from across the nation to celebrate Read Across America to showcase the importance of reading Feb. 28 through March 4.
During the week, school sites and classrooms will focus on making reading fun with many exciting reading activities, volunteer readers and dress up days.
“Broken Arrow educators truly understand that literacy is the key to student achievement and are committed to providing students with a variety of opportunities that lead them to success,” Deputy Superintendent Dr. Karla Dyess said. “We have more than 19,000 students enrolled at Broken Arrow Public Schools, and we realize that each comes with unique needs in regards to literacy.”
Read Across America is only one of many literacy initiatives the district has adopted. Others include Reading Recovery, Literacy Now and small group intervention with highly qualified reading teachers.
