Early Literacy

MVWSD recognizes the importance of a holistic approach to address the needs of emerging readers. The Director of Literacy and the Literacy team will provide instructional leadership and strategic direction for curriculum, instruction, assessment, and professional development to ensure literacy achievement and growth across all grades. A team of intervention teachers and instructional assistants will work with students and staff at schools that demonstrate lower student achievement for emerging readers (K-2).

Reading/Language Arts program

MVWSD uses Benchmark Advance as its comprehensive Reading/Language Arts program for Kindergarten through fifth grade. Benchmark Adelante provides the same program in Spanish for our students at Mistral's Dual Immersion program.

These programs are built to meet the demands of the English Language Arts/Literacy and English Language Development standards with rigorous, integrated reading, writing, speaking, and listening instruction.
