Welcome to the Literacy Program at Sandburg.  In this program, our elementary students meet in small groups to learn and practice reading strategies that increase fluency and comprehension.  We work closely with the students' classroom teachers to ensure that the students are receiving reading instruction and support both in their classrooms and with a Literacy Specialist.

The Literacy Curriculum Transparency website is a requirement under the READ Act due to the passage of Senate Bill 21-151. 

  The READ Act Data dashboard focuses on early literacy development for all students with special attention for students at risk or not achieving reading proficiency by the end of third grade.
