Literacy is the foundation of all learning. Improving and sustaining literacy across MPS is key to achieving equitable educational outcomes in our community.

MPS Literacy Vision:

To affirm and cultivate learner's language and literacy development centering identity, joy, and critical thinking.

MPS Literacy Mission:

  • To support all learners from birth to adulthood in literacy development as they become more empowered, inspired, and engaged participants in multicultural local and global societies.
  • To prioritize langauge development and literacy (reading, writing, speaking, listening, viewing, and exchanging ideas) through culturally sustaining curriculum and instruction in an inclusive environment as a means to achieve equitable educational outcomes in our communities.
  • To increase, specifically, BIPOC learners', multilingual learners', and learners receiving special education services' growth and proficiency in literacy through evidence-based instruction.
