ELAR Department
  • 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 6-12 in the promotion of life-long literacy and college and career readiness. Our program focuses on student proficiency in critical thinking skills as applied to reading, written and oral communication, and media analysis.

    We believe 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; life-long learning stems from becoming a life-long reader. We encourage students to set aside time to enjoy uninterrupted reading allowing them to absorb and contemplate ideas from their reading experience.
