Literacy Department Overview

  • Literacy Department Logo The ability to READ, WRITE, and COMMUNICATE connects people and empowers them to achieve things they never thought possible. - International Literacy Association

    Broward County Public Schools is committed to nurturing and developing a strong literacy foundation for all students in the early school years by implementing a Balanced, Responsive Literacy Instructional Framework that will prepare students to become independent readers and writers. 

    The battle for quality education is the social justice cause of our time. If you believe that every child has the right to a quality education, then there is no more important work than providing the right leadership to dramatically transform public education in this country. Literacy is key to that transformation, and when it is developed early, with a focus on the whole child, it has dramatic impact on life long future success. Signature
