Welcome to the Literacy Department

  • Fort Worth ISD must make a change in literacy instructional practices to improve outcomes for all students without regard to race, language, or the zip code in which they reside. Our goal is to provide professional learning opportunities and coaching support for instructional leaders and teachers to ensure that our scholars receive daily high quality Tier 1 core literacy instruction in grades K-12.

    Our students deserve the best, and it is up to each of us independently and collectively to provide our students with authentic learning opportunities for acceleration, growth, and enrichment.
