Parents: We Need Your Help Completing This Literacy Survey!

Parents, please help our students by completing this short Literacy Survey. We have been chosen by the State and the District to receive additional support in Literacy for our students. Monday, September 23rd is the deadline for our parents to complete the Parent Survey. 
Here is the full text of this exciting news from the California Department of Education:
Recently, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Thurmond announced a new
literacy campaign that will begin for the 2019–2020 school year in partnership with two
selected county offices of education, Tulare and Riverside. These two counties were
chosen due to their current efforts in the area of literacy, paired with unmet needs that
can be fulfilled when aligning with the California Department of Education (CDE) under
this new partnership.  In turn, Tulare County Office of Education Superintendent Tim
Hire has approached Porterville Unified School District (PUSD) to participate in a small
cohort of five districts to develop and implement a theory for improving literacy in Tulare
County. This campaign will seek to provide books in the hands of students, resources
and support for teachers to help support the efforts, and family and community
engagement to reinforce the love of reading for all ages with the understanding that our
learning will serve to inform the department of education in its efforts to improve literacy
A requirement set forth by CDE is that the approach taken  is based on a needs
assessment and is data-driven. For this reason, PUSD parents/guardians are asked to
complete this short (5-10 minutes) survey by Monday, September 23. Similarly,
administrators, teachers, and students will be asked to complete a survey specifically
designed for them.
