The English Language Arts and Reading program for Boerne Independent School District supports the district’s mission through the development and delivery of TEKS-based instruction and assessment for grades PK-12 in the promotion of life-long literacy and college and career readiness. The foundational literacy skills of listening, speaking, reading, writing, and thinking are vital to ensuring Boerne ISD students see themselves as lifelong readers and writers.
Boerne ISD believes the key to being a great reader is to read extensively, and the key to being a great writer is through exposure to great writing.
Reading is not solely reserved for the classroom; lifelong learning stems from becoming a lifelong reader. Students need time to enjoy uninterrupted reading allowing them to absorb and contemplate ideas from their reading experiences. Independent reading gives students a strong foundation to build upon as they move through the English Language Arts program.
