Literacy Vision Statement

Five-Year Plan (2009-2014)

The Salem School District understands that a literate person thinks and communicates through reading, writing, speaking, listening, presenting, and viewing using a variety of print and technological tools to lead a fulfilling life in our changing world. All students enter our schools with diverse literacy experiences that are honored and expanded through purposeful, differentiated  instruction by all Salem School District staff members. Our schools foster a collaborative community for active, responsible, life-long learning.
