Literacy Innovation Design Team (LIDT)
The LIDT began the work of the Literacy Plan in August, 2015, as outlined in the AISD Strategic Plan:
Core Belief: All students will graduate college-, career-, and life-ready.
Commitment: Ensure all students perform at or above grade level in math and reading.
Strategy: We will improve the reading and writing of all students.
Key Action Step 3.1.a Develop and implement a literacy plan that includes the science of reading instruction and the practical applications of concepts.
The Literacy Plan focuses on strengthening tier one, core instruction (including Dual Language and ESL) with the support of RtI, 504, and SpED services.
Literacy Plan Components
Elementary LA Class Schedules and Norms
Secondary LA Class Schedules and Norms
PreK-12th Grade Norm Example: Integrate digital literacy by using tools (e.g., age‐appropriate devices, software, web 2.0 tools) for prewriting, drafting, and publishing their work.
Beyond the school year, AISD will combat summer reading slide by establishing the 5-Book Dive.
