Sojourner Truth Academy is
Committed to ALL Students Reading at Grade Level by 3rd Grade
At Sojourner Truth Academy we believe that ALL students can and will achieve at high levels. We are committed to giving 100% of ourselves everyday and doing whatever it takes to ensure that ALL students are reading well by third grade and are on the path to college.
We have developed a school board approved Literacy Plan for our stakeholders that outlines our school’s goals, systems, and accountability measures. The plan is our commitment to parents, students, and the community to show that we will do whatever it takes to make every child at STA a successful reader. It includes eight components for success: goals, assessments, parent involvement, intervention and instructional supports, professional development, curriculum and instructional systems, support for EL learners, and communication. This literacy plan will be the guiding force for all literacy decisions at STA. All staff will be knowledgeable in all aspects of the plan and dedicated to following it to ensure that all students are reading well by 3rd grade.
Details regarding the 2015-2016 plan and its components can be found by clicking the link Sojourner Truth Academy Local Literacy Plan. Additional information such as the testing schedule, quarterly data, and K-3 literacy curriculum maps can be found by clicking the links below.
We would love to hear feedback from our stakeholders on the accessibility of the information on our literacy plan, usefulness of our documents, and resources. Please email feedback to Sara Toley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
