Literacy affects every part of a student’s life and life chances.

The Oakland Schools Literacy Team advances literacy by equipping educators and administrators with effective practices for all students from birth to grade twelve.

Oakland Schools does not endorse particular resources. We support and endorse:

  • the Essential Instructional Practices
  • the use of multiple sources of data and an articulated process for selecting and reviewing resources
  • implementation of the Essential Instructional Practices for growing teacher efficacy
