    The Secondary ELAR Department is responsible for the development and monitoring of mandated district ELAR curriculum, assessment, and evidence-based instructional approaches and professional development for Grades 6-12.  The teams offer campus and classroom support and instructional resources to help facilitate the effective implementation of our aligned curriculum and district instructional approaches.  From attending planning meetings, working with new and veteran teachers, to working with Academic Lead teachers and administrators, our staff is available to help teachers and teams develop stronger readers, writers, and critical thinkers in the classroom.  Contact one of our team members with questions.
